We are now accepting applications for the postgraduate course in Applied Marine and Fisheries Ecology at the University of Aberdeen (starting September 2009). The course is a 12-month unique programme offered in partnership with The Scottish Fisheries Research Services leading to a MSc, MRes, or PgDip degree.

This interdisciplinary course, taught by both academics and front-line government fisheries scientist, will equip students with the knowledge and tools needed to meet the challenges of the ecosystem-based management paradigm and find new solutions to manage our natural resources.

Key features of the programme:
* Optional modules over a wide range of disciplines from marine top predator ecology to environmental economics and more
* A range of professional practitioners and academic staff are involved in teaching
* Develop both your quantitative and biological skills
*Added value experiences: gaining a sea survival certification and the possibility of participating in FRS surveys
*Interactive teaching: student led debates and presentations are an integrated part of the curriculum
