The Marine Station is a landmark £4.65 million development 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

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.
