BSc (Hons) Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology
In this hands-on degree, one of the best in the UK and with an international reputation, you’ll tackle big questions, such as why are coral reefs so diverse, how do we best manage and conserve marine life, and how will climate change impact biodiversity? Fieldwork will be a key component of your studies, using the excellent marine and coastal habitats on Plymouth’s doorstep, as well as on residential courses in France and South Africa.
Working in partnership with our teaching staff – all of whom are leading international researchers – you’ll develop industry-relevant skills using some of Europe’s best marine facilities. The opportunity to take a six or 12-month international placement in your third year will also further enhance your workplace-related experience. With its combination of pure and applied aspects, this degree will equip you with the knowledge and skills to tackle major environmental challenges.
