Sea levels are rising. Icebergs are melting. Species are facing extinction. Now more than ever, we need to protect our precious marine resources. That’s where you come in…
When you choose the Marine Biology course offered at The University of Hull , you’re at the centre of one of the UK’s most important aquatic habitats. The North Sea, internationally recognised research facilities – including The Deep – and the rest of the Yorkshire Nature Triangle are on your doorstep.
Fieldwork opportunities here are exceptional – both at home and overseas. Recently, our students got the chance to work in far-flung places like Brazil and Egypt. On top of this, we offer part-funded PADI advanced scuba dive training as part of your degree.
