Course Introduction

Our Aquatic Ecology by Research programme provides comprehensive practical training by application in the laboratory or field, rather than by formal tuition in the lecture theatre. The format is designed to equip you with the skills and experience to undertake further academic or applied research.

Students will take three taught modules and conduct a nine month extended project. The extended project is an integral part of this programme and will provide students with the skills required to undertake further academic or applied research. During the research project you will be co'supervised by either established PhD students or by potential employer organisations. You will also be encouraged to publish your project work.
