About this course

If you want to study marine science in one of the most beautiful coastal regions and pursue a career in the marine industry then this is the course for you. You will study a series of modules to gain the essential knowledge and skills to work in the marine science sector.

Our location gives us access to a superb 'outdoor classroom' and we are within half an hour of a range of coastlines of all types from pounding surf beaches to sheltered sandy bays. You will be able to study these areas and learn all about the influences and habitats that create them.
