About the course

How does climate change affect whales and seals? How does over-fishing influence marine food-webs? How do we restore and protect the Wadden Sea?

The two-year selective Master's degree programme in Marine Biology focuses on life in our planet's seas and oceans. Whether you are interested in biological oceanography, conservation of marine mammals, or coastal marine ecology, we offer plenty opportunities to receive a solid academic training in marine biological research. Together with your mentor (who will be a professor in marine biology) you can design your own study programme to fit your personal preferences.

Our flexible Master's degree program is open to students with a Bachelor's degree in Biology. We offer a number of mandatory master courses, taught by experienced staff from several

For the Groningen Graduate School of Science and Engineering (GSSE) another important task is to provide an optimal training environment for all PhD students in the faculty. To this end, the GSSE organises courses in 'transferable skills,' coordinates and advertises courses offered by other graduate schools and research schools, provides practical information for PhD students, organises meetings and other networking activities, and provides a forum for discussion.

All educational activities at the faculty are facilitated and supported by the Educational Support Centre (ESC).

Research

Research at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is done in a number of research institutes. Researchers and research groups also participate in different international, national and local research institutes.
