As a world centre for degrees in ocean and earth science, we seek to understand how the ocean fits within the dynamic earth system.
Our unique Waterfront Campus attracts prominent researchers and educators from around the world, who join us to work within the areas of geochemistry, geology and geophysics, ocean biodiversity, geochemistry and ecosystems, physical oceanography, palaeoceanography and palaeoclimate, and coastal and shelf seas.
Through degree programmes in oceanography, marine biology, geology and geophysics, our ocean and earth science degree students have access to ships, ocean technology and opportunities for fieldwork and scientific cruises not traditionally found in standard university environments.
