North P&I Club announced it has presented awards and scholarships to the best students on one of the world’s leading marine technology courses. The presentations were made at the prize-giving ceremony for the Marine Technology with Management MSc post-graduate program, which took place recently at Newcastle University’s School of Marine Science and Technology. 
 
North P&I Club’s relationship with the Newcastle University School of Marine Science and Technology is now into its 14th year. The school is the U.K.'s first to provide a single base for all education, innovation and research related to the sea, with more than 800 students from more than 25 countries taking degrees in marine biology, technology and oceanography each year. The MSc program is led by professor John Mangan and senior lecturer Paul Stott and one of the program’s eight modules is run by North. The module covers an introduction to P&I insurance and underwriting as well as collisions, damage to property and pollution.
 
Bulgarian Cvetan Belchev of Mitsui OSK Lines received the award for the best performance on the 2014/15 MSc program overall. Aged 29, he is currently working in London as an operations coordinator for the Japanese firm’s European tanker division. Singaporean research student Adnan Rahim won the award for the best performance in the 2014/15 MSc program module on Marine Liability Insurance and Law. 
 
U.K. student Andrew Sumner, who graduated from the school’s Marine Technology with Offshore Engineering degree course this summer, was awarded a scholarship from North to support his place on the 2015/16 MSc program. Bradley Scott, currently in the final year of the same degree course, also received a scholarship. The scholarships are for students wishing to pursue a career in marine insurance or who have a relevant dissertation topic.
