Our oceans account for over 70 per cent of the Earth's surface: they are as fascinating as they are important, yet they are increasingly vulnerable and we still have a lot still to learn about them. How does oxygen get to the bottom of the oceans? What makes a great surf beach? How can we protect our marine ecosystems for future generations? Explore these questions and many more when you study marine sciences at Plymouth.
Whether you are interested in pure and applied science; field, lab or computer based work; or helping to manage and conserve valuable species and ecosystems, studying marine science at Plymouth will prepare you for a variety of exciting career opportunities.
