Course Description

The Course has run for over 40 years and is unique in the UK for the depth of Physical Oceanography training provided. The first two semesters of the course are taught, introducing the student to the physics of the ocean and its role in the climate system. Modules cover both oceanographic theory and its application, as well as practical oceanography. The latter includes an introduction of instrumentation, remote sensing, numerical modelling as well as practical experience working on small boats and the University state-of-the-art research vessel, the Prince Madog. Student achievement is evaluated by continuous assessments and module examinations. The research project, which forms a major component of the course, is selected in close consultation with the students to be of direct relevance to their intended future work. To date most of our graduates have found challenging employment in the oceanographic or closely related fields and many have continued to higher degrees and an academic career. ***Bangor University International Entrance Scholarship - 10% reduction - to apply before 30th June*** ACCESS TO MASTERS FUNDING ( European Union Convergence) available to eligible students **Accreditation**: All Masters programmes have been accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) and as such facilitates student progression to Chartered status in later professional life.
