Course summary

The Marine Biology programme will develop your scientific and transferable skills that underpin the subject area. It supports you to engage with theoretical principles and critically evaluate both your own, and others research, whilst gaining strong practical skills, to enable you to seek employment in this sector. The programme is enriched by work experience and preparatory practical experiences to fully equip you for industry or for further study. You will develop your skills as a biological scientist by completing field work and sampling, carrying out studies of the environment and ecosystems, and working with local employers to carry out scientific study and research. Marine Biology employment opportunities are rich and varied, with graduates progressing to a host of employers, environmental organisations and private consultation companies (including Natural England, North West Fisheries, APEM Ltd Environmental Consultants and biodiversity specialists, Merlin Entertainment Sea Life). The work you carry out has real, measurable impact on the local environment through links with conservation trusts and research centres, complementing the teaching and learning within your lectures and growing your employability and career options.
