|Institution||Bangor University View institution profile|
|Department||School of Law View department profile|
The course will appeal to applicants who are interested in the law of the sea and international law, but who do not necessarily want to study the commercial aspects of a Maritime Law degree.
The course focusses predominantly on international law, with a particular emphasis on the law of the sea. Students will acquire expertise in the multifaceted interface between the different fields of international law, whilst also developing specialist knowledge of the law pertaining to the sea. The skills learnt on this programme are adaptable to work in international bodies (e.g. the UN), international courts and tribunals, and international law firms; as well as in roles relating to piracy or marine pollution (e.g. the ICC Commercial Crime Services, the International Maritime Organisation, the Marine Management Organisation and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency).

January intake: Taught modules are undertaken in the period of January to June and September to January and will involve the study of 120 credits. The dissertation (or equivalent) is valued at 60 credits and is undertaken during the period of June to September.
