About

This Prevention and Suppression of International Crime at Sea programme of study is a Joint Master's degree between the Faculty of Laws at the University of Malta and the Department of Law at the University of Ferrara.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The students in the Prevention and Suppression of International Crime at Sea  programme from University of Malta  will be able to learn a new topic which they would not have studied in their undergraduate studies thereby applying their knowledge to a new area of the law. They will, in particular, acquire understanding of the law related to the prevention and suppression of international crime at sea and international law dealing with transnational and international crime at sea.

The first two taught study-units are intended to develop the student’s intellectual faculties with the dissertation component assisting them to carry out academic research and apply it to the writing of a dissertation, the other taught study-unit will focus on practical issues which will assist the students to have a hands on experience and develop key skills by learning from the experience of people in the field who will adopt more of a practical approach to complement the academic training garnered in the taught and dissertation study-units.

Career opportunites and access to further studies

These skills will be an asset to employability with the forces of law and order and international organisations that have a particular responsibility in the prevention and suppression of international crime at sea.

In so far as students who are already in employment with the forces of law and order and international organisations, this will enhance their knowledge in the area they are called to enforce, providing them with professional development and better future career prospects, including opportunities for promotion and self-development.
