Description

This research masters programme will give you the opportunity to conduct research alongside staff at the forefront of their academic disciplines across the marine sciences. You will be supported within an active interdisciplinary learning environment, working on a research topic in collaboration with your supervisor leading to a formal postgraduate qualification.

The programme offers the flexibility to shape your research in an area of particular interest to you, and the opportunity to gain research skills from taught modules both within the school and across the wider university. Potential applicants should first discuss the possibility of working towards a ResM with a suitable academic supervisor (i.e. someone who works in your research field of interest) and the specifics of the research should be agreed before an application to study is made.
