Postgraduate research programmes

A first-class or upper second-class BSc degree (or equivalent) is required to enrol on our PhD programme. We are looking for applicants with an aptitude for research, demonstrated by your undergraduate or masters project work, coupled with a sound background in basic science.

Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, we accept students with backgrounds in a wide range of science subjects; often these are augmented by a suitable masters degree in a marine based science.
