Master's programmes at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK -

Marine Mammal Science & Ecosystem-based Management of Marine Systems

We are currently accepting applications for our unique and intense one-year Master's programmes at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, UK for 2017/18 entry.

The Master's in Marine Mammal Science (MSc MMS ) is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year! The programme reflects the research interests and expertise of the staff at the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU). This unique Master's has a strong focus on quantitative methods and applied techniques and is designed to prepare students fully for a professional career involved with conservation of and research into marine mammals. Optional modules take full advantage of the research strengths of the SMRU covering biologging, bioacoustics, behaviour and population biology. The optional Antarctica field course involves a vessel-based field expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula (requires additional payment of a substantial expedition fee) - follow the upcoming 5th student expedition on our blog: http://www.smru.st-andrews.ac.uk/antarctic. For detailed information on the Marine Mammal Masters including content, entry requirements and how to apply please refer to the MSc MMS website: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/pg/taught-programmes/mms-biology/

The Master's in Ecosystem-based Management of Marine Systems (MSc EMMS) is now in its fifth year and is jointly delivered by the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI) at St Andrews and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) at the West coast of Scotland, offering the best of both Scottish coasts. Students study marine environments from the tropics to polar regions as integrated systems, exploring interconnections between the physical environment, biodiversity and the impacts of human activity and resource use. Students can opt to join the Antarctic expedition (see above) or take a field course in scientific diving in Indonesia. For detailed information including content, entry requirements and how to apply please refer to the MSc EMMS website http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/pg/taught-programmes/emms-biology/ .

Applications for the upcoming academic year (starting September 2017) must be received by Friday, 31 March 2017, and should be submitted online via the St Andrews Postgraduate Admission Portal: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/pg/apply/taught/.
