Course summary

Life first emerged in the ocean and has spread throughout this dynamic environment. The distribution, growth and success of marine organisms is affected by the interaction of biological, chemical and physical processes operating in the ocean.You will study the interaction between the biology of marine organisms, the composition and properties of seawater and the physical processes operating in the oceans.There is a strong emphasis on marine sustainability and ecosystem management, marine biogeochemistry, the climate system and numerical skills. Training at sea, in the field, and in the laboratory in Years One, Two and Three will provide you with the essential skills required to be a successful marine scientist including practical experience of data collection and processing, analysis and interpretation.This programme is accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Registered Marine Technologist and as partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Marine Technologist.This programme is available with a Year in China.
