The Graduate School of NOCS (GSNOCS) is part of Ocean and Earth Science at the University of Southampton, but works closely with the Natural Environment Research Council to offer first class research experiences for our students. There are almost around 200 research students within the Graduate School, with an annual intake of 40-45, and approximately 75 masters students, from all over the world, from many scientific disciplines.
The goal of the Graduate School is to provide the best possible education for graduate students in ocean and Earth sciences, to provide students with the skills and knowledge to operate at the very cutting edge of research, to prepare students for future employment and to instil the motivation and ethos that breed successful careers. A good postgraduate education occurs through a number of complementary processes. The Graduate School strives to provide the best balance for its postgraduate students.
