The Institute has a well-equipped maritime law library. The Library now has in its possession most of the major textbooks in the field of international maritime law. It constantly expands its acquisition of journals and is now moving towards including French texts and building a collection of texts on different legal systems.
The Library continues to attract book donations from law firms and distinguished personalities. It is worth noting that the collection of national maritime legislation donated by students each year is also expanding.
Students also have access to the Library of the University of Malta.
All student rooms are equipped with round-the-clock Wi-Fi internet service. Service is also provided in the Library.
Students are required to have a health insurance for the whole duration of their stay in Malta with cover for hospital care. Evidence of this insurance may be required by the relevant Embassy when the student applies for an entry visa. However, health insurance is mandatory when students apply in Malta for a study residence permit.
Should students find difficulty in obtaining insurance which cover extends for the whole duration of their stay in Malta, the Institute can assist in obtaining locally the required health insurance when the student arrives in Malta.
The cost of the insurance is to be borne by the student. All documentation relating to the insurance needs to be either issued in the English language or translated into the English language.
Students are expected to cater for themselves. Alternatively, Cafeteria facilities are available at lunchtime at the University of Malta where a relatively inexpensive meal can be obtained.
There is a students’ Common Room on the Institute’s premises equipped with television, DVD, video, recreational reading material and some games.
Students may be assigned certain duties relating to the academic and residential life of the Institute.
