¿Qué aprenderé?

Our unique multidisciplinary course, MSc Tropical Marine Biology, is designed to deliver advanced tropical marine biology theory and to facilitate the development of a comprehensive range of practical and professional skills required by today’s employers.

As a student at our School, you will benefit from the breadth of research carried out by our internationally recognised academics and will engage with current research activities both in the UK and abroad. You also can put theory into practice and study coral reef conservation first-hand during the school’s annual field trip to the Wakatobi Marine National Park, Indonesia. Please note that students who join this optional expedition are subject to additional travel costs – the fee for field trips vary from year to year.

Explore topics including:

  • The biotechnological ‘treasure chest’ of marine microbes, algae, and invertebrates
  • Tropical oceans, seagrass beds, mangroves, and coral reefs
  • Coral reef resource management and conservation

During the summer term, you will embark on your own extensive research project under the supervision of researchers at the forefront of their fields. This can be conducted within our in-house Coral Reef Research Unit, or alongside one of our research partners from across the globe, addressing key questions on the functioning of and threats to tropical marine ecosystems.

Your future

As the world's environmental problems increase, the demand for qualified marine biologists continues to grow, and postgraduate study is often a requirement for becoming a researcher, scientist, academic journal editor and to work in some public bodies or private companies.

Many of our master’s students’ progress to study for their PhD, and we offer numerous studentships to support our students in their studies.

Our graduates go on to a range of careers. Some work with governmental and non-governmental environmental agencies, organisations, consultancies, and voluntary organisations, or go on to conduct doctorate research. Many overseas students return to comparable posts in their home country.

We work with the University’s Careers Services to help you find out about further work experience, internships, placements, and voluntary opportunities.
