Course summary

Marine Biology is the study of organisms that occupy 95% of the biosphere of our planet, living in conditions ranging from the polar seas (below -2℃) to hydrothermal vents (greater than 100℃). We are increasingly aware of the value of marine organisms for their role in influencing and indicating changes in our climate, for food, medicine and other products. The majority of the worlds species are found in the oceans; and range from the smallest micro-organism on the planet to the largest invertebrates such as giant squid and mammals like the blue whale. This very popular course allows you to study the fundamental aspects of the biology of marine life as well as more specialised aspects such as aquaculture, fisheries and marine biotechnology.We are one of the largest university centres teaching marine sciences in the UK and among the biggest in Europe.Our excellent teaching facilities include an extensive marine and freshwater aquaria with a suite of temperature controlled rooms.We are on the coast, next to the Irish Sea and the Menai Strait so the perfect place to study ocean science, providing a range of habitat types for field courses and study sites for final-year projects.‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Marine Biology (with Foundation Year) C16F.
