I thought you might be interested in hearing a bit about our exciting and
innovative course on Marine Mammals & Turtle Biology, hosted by ourselves
here at UMBSM and with fieldwork in the Clyde and on and around the
beautiful island of Mull.

This course is intended both to provide students with a broad knowledge and
understanding of marine mammals and turtles, and to use these charismatic
large animals to illustrate concepts of marine ecology and animal
behaviour. Taught during the summer vacation at UMBSM and on the Isle of
Mull, it is pitched at final year undergraduate level. However, it is also
accessible to students who have a strong personal interest in marine
biology. It would also be valuable as the basis for a masters-level course,
especially for students with no prior knowledge of large marine
vertebrates.  The dates of the course this year are:	Group 1: 4–15 July 2008
		Group 2: 8–19 July 2008

and the cost is £665 including full board & lodging at UMBSM; self-catering
at Arle Lodge near Tobermory, Isle of Mull; boat trips; and travel between
Millport and Tobermory. Please note that accommodation at UMBSM is on a
shared-room basis. There is a single occupancy supplement of £57.05.

For further information, please refer to our website at
www.gla.ac.uk/Acad/Marine and click on "Teaching" then "stand-alone".

To enquire about reserving a place on the course, contact Dr D McCafferty
of the Department of Adult & Continuing Education in Glasgow University at
d.mccafferty at educ.gla.ac.uk or myself here at the University Marine
Biological Station.

I shall look forward to speaking with you.
