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.
