Applications are through the usual system for application to masters degrees within University of Plymouth, with the Programme Leader or nominated deputy acting as admissions tutor and making all decisions.
However, as there are limited places available on the programme due to the collaboration with partners, a modified application process will be followed for this programme.
As part of the generic PG application criteria, all applicants are generally required to present a personal statement. However, for this MSc Marine Conservation we would instead like applicants to provide a short written piece around what they see as the pressing marine conservation priorities and their motivations for undertaking the programme.
Please attach this completed proforma in the section of the online application form entitled personal statement/proposal.
Applications for 2024 will close by 31 May 2024, by which time students will have been offered a place, a reserve place or rejected (directed towards an alternative University of Plymouth programme). Early applications from exceptional candidates are encouraged, and applications will be processed as they arrive with most applications passing the course criteria likely to be kept on hold for decisions on places near the closing date. Those given an offer will be expected to formally accept by June at the latest and will then be processed by the university for accommodation, etc where relevant.
Applications for 2024 entry will open in November 2024 with a closing date of 31 May 2024.
