Course summary

**The new BSc (Hons) Marine Biology is the first of its kind in the Northwest, managing to strike a fine balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skill learning.** Our oceans are filled with delicate ecosystems and amazing wildlife, but all of this is in danger. The human and environmental impact on ocean life is becoming increasingly apparent; develop the necessary skills to manage and preserve our oceans and have a positive impact on our natural world. Thanks to the supportive learning environment, you will gain a systematic understanding of key aspects of the marine environment, as well as a detailed insight into the industry that relies on it. The curriculum is contemporary and will enhance employability through the University’s collaboration initiative. Practical training is particularly relevant and will be delivered during two residential fieldtrips. The first one, in the second year of study, will be carried out in Dale (Wales), at the renowned Dale Fort Field Station. The second trip will be organized at the beginning on the third year, in Kavala, Greece, in collaboration with the national Fisheries Research Institute.Features• Tailor your second, and third year modules to include your particular areas of interest• Gain an understanding of ecological issues facing marine managers alongside the socioeconomic, governance, equality and ethical pressures affecting their work • Gain real-world context for your studies through residential field trips and an optional placement year
