Course summary

Your four-year degree will be based at the world-leading National Oceanographic Centre Southampton (NOCS) and will give you a comprehensive understanding of global marine sciences and the biology of marine organisms and their relationship with their environment. You will develop your understanding in a progressive fashion, adding knowledge and practical skills over time from work in the laboratory, field, and on board our research vessels, which are moored just minutes away from the lecture theatres at our Waterfront campus. You will have the opportunity to expand your study skills and broaden your field research beyond the environments found around the UK, with an optional tropical marine ecology field course in the Galapagos (working from the Charles Darwin Research Station) or potentially an option to visit the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Science (BIOS).In your final-year you will complete an extensive research project (50% of your final year) in a specialised area of marine biology alongside one of our cutting edge research groups.100% of MSci Marine Biology Students were satisfied or very satisfied with the overall quality of their course.* University of Southampton analysis of unpublished NSS data 2020.
