Program overview

You will be taught by a team of international researchers with diverse expertise ranging from marine microbes (that constitute 50% of the biomass in the oceans) through to hydrothermal vents and the migration of oceanic megafauna. With an exceptional staff to student ratio of 1:3 we have the opportunity to personalise your education via small group tutorials and help guide you towards your career goals. The course content is designed to blend strong training in marine biology with core skills in the biosciences ranging from physiology and genetics through to conservation biology and global climate change. This broad-based approach allows graduates to explore a range of career opportunities within the biological sciences, as well as within the field of marine biology. This taught content is complemented by an exceptional array of extra-curricular activities aimed at building your employability; from work-shadowing marine PhD students from stage 1 of your degree through to dedicated skills-development workshops at our marine laboratory including boat-handling, satellite tracking and underwater video technology.
