Course summary

INTRODUCTION

This course will provide you with a strong foundation in biology and environmental issues, allowing you to progress onto a BSc (Hons) Marine Biology degree course.

During the foundation year you will study modules which will increase your knowledge and understanding of basic biology and other aspects of environmental studies. There is an emphasis on both understanding and problem solving in addition to practical and communication skills.

COURSE DETAILS

The new BSc (Hons) Marine Biology is the first of its kind in the north-west, managing to strike a fine balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skill learning. 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 industry collaboration initiative.

Practical training is particularly relevant and will be delivered during two residential field trips. The first one, in the second year of study, will be carried out in Scotland, at the renowned FSC Millport Field Station. The second trip will be organised at the beginning on the third year, in Kavala, Greece, in collaboration with the national Fisheries Research Institute.

EMPLOYMENT AND STATS

Marine biology graduates can enter a wide range of career paths. These include careers related to the wider sciences training such as science communication and publishing, science administration, to marine life conservation and management. Other graduates may go on to work in the environmental consultancy industry, marine biotechnology as well as research institutes and government agencies.
