AMA students visit the IMO

On 25th and 26th March 2019 a group of students visited London, U.K. The trip, the first of its kind, was organised by Alison Noble with the HZS Student Council. Alison Noble and Ludwina Van Son accompanied the group. Fifteen students enrolled in 3Ba and the Master’s programme joined the trip and were part-sponsored by STUVO.

The visit included maritime highlights, in particular a guided tour of the UN International Maritime Organization (IMO), followed by lunch in the IMO’s spectacular cafeteria/roof garden overlooking the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament. Students were treated to a tour of the building, including a visit to the auditorium where the IMO Assembly meets and the IMO library. The group attended presentations on the work of the IMO and explanations about the many maritime artifacts which the building houses.

The party also travelled by river bus to Greenwich, a UNESCO world heritage site. In Greenwich students took a guided tour of the highlights of the National Maritime Museum, followed by a walk to the Royal Observatory and the famous Greenwich Meridian Line.

It is hoped that the visit will be repeated in coming years offering other students and members of staff the opportunity to learn more about the IMO and London’s rich maritime heritage.
