The Marine Station is a landmark £4.65 million development opened in 2014 which serves as the base for our marine expeditionary work. It's an exceptional teaching and research facility that’s located on the shores of Plymouth Sound – part of our ‘Waterfront Campus’, with classrooms extending out into the natural environment.
The Marine Station includes:
- lecture facilities overlooking the sea
- a wet lab for sample examination and analysis
- a seawater aquarium
- field equipment storage and changing facilities
- a base for research vessels.
Unique to higher education in the UK, the Marine Station is also a centre of excellence for diving that enables you to get professional diving qualifications and develop valuable industry-relevant skills. Such skills have enabled our graduates to work as divers for television documentaries and surveyors for the British Antarctic Survey.
