Course content

This one-year programme will equip students with the knowledge and tools needed to meet the challenge of finding new solutions to manage our marine natural resources. This interdisciplinary course offers a unique curriculum allowing you to gain both theoretical and practical experience. There is equal emphasis on developing your biological and quantitative toolkit so that you can understand biological and ecological processes, learn new analytical techniques and understand how to apply those to manage natural resources.

We have world-class facilities to support field research in marine ecology including several field stations (Oceanlab, Cromarty Lighthouse) and research can be carried out in partnership with professional agencies such as the Marine Scotland-Science, SNH and JNCC.
