Master

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Earning a Master requires two years of education after earning a Bachelor. This advanced degree may help students to achieve their educational and professional goals, as the rigors of a Master’s program help train students in the skills and knowledge they need to land the career of their dreams.

 

Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

Masters 2017 in Alta Norway. The oceans cover over 70 percent of the surface of the Earth. It is vital for communication, military and strategic uses and for its living and non-living natural resources. In recent years, there has been increasing importance on the marine biodiversity. The LL.M. programme aims to broaden the traditional approach to the Law of the Sea from jurisdictional issues to also include substantial law such as conservation and sustainable use of biological resources and protection of biodiversity and the environment. Although the programme of study has a clear global profile, it will also have a distinct Arctic dimension. Much of the Arctic consists of marine areas. Global climate change will increasingly subject these areas to various uses such as navigation, oil and gas exploitation, fisheries and research. The Arctic regions provide unique opportunities for studying both global and regional legal approaches to protect and preserve the marine environment. The research community in Tromsø is a world leader in marine Arctic issues, including natural sciences, history, political science and law. In addition to the University of Tromsø, the Norwegian Polar Institute is situated in Tromsø. The objective of the LL.M. programme is to introduce the students to such perspectives enabling them to improve their ability to understand the function of the law and learn to interpret it. The programme extends over three semesters or 1 calendar year: FIRST SEMESTER JUR-3050 General Law of the Sea The course provides a general introduction to the Law of the... [-]
