Program description

You will train with internationally-recognised scientists using state-of-the-art learning environments and laboratories housing the latest equipment, while taking advantage of our wide range of fieldwork opportunities in the UK and overseas. In your first year, you will explore marine ecology on our rocky shore ecology residential field trip. You can immerse yourself in biodiversity studies during the optional coral reef expedition to Indonesia in your second year, before studying oceanography and marine conservation on an elective field trip to the Greek Mediterranean Islands in your final year.

With a placement on our Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme, you can work as a research assistant in one of our laboratories over the summer before embarking on your final year research project under the guidance of your academic supervisor. You will gain extensive professional skills to apply your knowledge in any field of modern marine biology. This will equip you with flexibility in your career choice, including the possible continuation of your studies for a Master's degree or at PhD level.
