Through the MSEM programme, WMU continues to make a significant contribution to the general maritime safety and environment protection goals in China by providing high-level specialized education.”
Backgrounds of students in the MSEM Class of 2023 include officials from the China Maritime Safety Administration, lecturers from DMU and other maritime education institutions, former seafarers, and recent DMU BSc graduates.

The intensive programme is taught over 15-months and instruction is entirely in English with the same entry requirements, grading system and quality assurance processes that are in force at WMU.
