Course summary

TEF Bronze

University of Salford has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The new BSc (hons) Marine Biology is the first of its kind in the Northwest, managing to strike a fine balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skill learning. Thanks to the supportive learning environment, the student will gain a systematic understanding of key aspects of the marine environment, as well as a detailed insight into the industry that relies on it. The curriculum is contemporary and will enhance employability through the University’s industry collaboration initiative.

Practical training is particularly relevant, and will be delivered during two residential fieldtrips. The first one, in the second year of study, will be carried out in Dale (Wales), at the renowned Dale Fort Field Station. The second trip will be organized at the beginning on the third year, in Kavala, Greece, in collaboration with the national Fisheries Research Institute.
