Course summary

The PG Certificate in Sustainable Aquaculture offers a range of part-time, e-learning courses at a postgraduate level with a focus on either vertebrates or invertebrates.

Course information

The Sustainable Aquaculture distance learning modular programme is taught part time via an online e-learning platform offering online tutorial support, direct email contact with tutors, video streams and access to student bulletin boards.

The award of Postgraduate Certificate requires 60 credits gained from a selection of taught modules. The Postgraduate Certificate provides a shorter programme than the Postgraduate Diploma or MSc Sustainable Aquaculture programme. Students focus either on vertebrate or invertebrate aquaculture species and have a choice of taking two out of the three optional topics.

Highlights

  • Flexible modular e-learning allows students to complete their studies while continuing in their employment.
  • Students are able to specialise in either vertebrates or invertebrates.
  • It is also possible to study single modules rather than the whole programme.

Careers

Graduates will typically pursue a career in higher level management, research and development or business development within the global aquaculture business.

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students in building their employability skills.
