Ocean Sciences with specialisations in the following:

Shelf Sea and Coastal Processes
Biogeochemistry and Palaeoceanography
Marine Ecosystems: Conservation and Resource Management

Research degrees

MPhil and PhD are research degrees and are awarded after the examination of a candidate's thesis, produced following a period of research.

It is possible for you to complete the MPhil after studying for only one year full-time or two years part-time. If you are a PhD candidate with a relevant Master's degree or at least two years' relevant experience, your period of registration could possibly be of only two years' duration full-time or three years part-time. This arrangement would have to be agreed by your Head of Department and Supervisor before your research is started. We expect PhD students to produce and submit a thesis for examination within four years of starting a three-year programme.
