School of Natural and Environmental Sciences



Get involved and take a course with us!

We run a six month programme each year that covers the biology and ecology of marine organisms.

You'll take five internet-based modules, which cover the coasts of the UK, open oceans, polar seas, tropical coral reefs, creatures of the deep and other topics.

You'll download and work through content, and complete online assessments.

The final module is a five day field course with us, where you'll get hands-on experience while supervised by knowledgeable experts.
