This course provides you with an exceptional grounding in marine environmental research. You’ll develop your understanding of key concepts and issues. You’ll also develop the skills and qualities required for a career in academia or industry. Through a combination of taught and research modules, our course develops your understanding of: •the roles of science, policy, technology and economic development in the marine environment •marine environmental issues, their origins and possible solutions •the principal processes maintaining and altering structure, function and ecosystem services of coastal waters •the key concepts and methodologies used in ecosystem, environmental management and conservation science •the context, purpose and implementation of resource mapping and evaluation •the theory, principles, concepts and practices in marine governance Our staff have over 30 years of research and teaching experience, both in the UK and overseas. Their expertise spans the natural and social sciences in coastal-marine science and management. Our taught modules will ground your understanding of marine ecosystem dynamics, research methodologies and environmental governance. You will develop your research skills by designing and completing a supervised project. Major sites for projects include the: •Red Sea •Maldives •Bahamas •Northumberland coast (UK) The project will develop a detailed knowledge of your chosen research topic by drawing on the research communities within the School of Marine Science and Technology. These include: •Marine Biology, Ecosystems and Governance (MBEG) •Oceans and Climate (OC) These research groups have had notable successes in their work on: •coral reefs (Prof John Bythell, Prof Alasdair Edwards, Prof Nicholas Polunin) •physical oceanography and climate modelling (Prof Andrew Willmott, Dr Miguel Maqueda) •marine spatial mapping and systems planning (Dr Clare Fitzsimmons) •marine protected areas and management (Prof Nicholas Polunin, Prof Selina Stead) •food webs (Prof Nicholas Polunin) They are also active in: •marine mammal monitoring (Dr Per Berggren) •citizen science and outreach (Dr Jane Delaney) •deep sea ecology and marine time series (Dr Ben Wigham) Partnerships There are exceptional opportunities if you see yourself in a marine environmental science research career.

Newcastle attracts students from over 120 countries worldwide and there is plenty of help and advice on hand to assist them in adapting to life in the UK. The university has a system where every student has a personal tutor to assist them in both academic and non-academic matters and there is also a Student Wellbeing Service for confidence advice and help. There is a Visa and Immigration Team on hand to deal with legal matters relating to these areas and a Student Advice Centre within the Studentâ€™s Union for information on matters such as housing and finances. Finally, towards the end of studying, there is a Careers Service to help students find work or further their education as required. The heart of student life outside the classroom in the university is the Newcastle University Students Union. Unlike many students unions, NUSU owns the building that it operates from, following an anonymous gift in 1924 that allowed them to build a neo-Jacobean style building. It is run by six sabbatical officers and employs some 300 people in roles such as bar staff and entertainment organisers. In the media, there is a student run newspaper, established in 1948, called The Courier as well as radio station. The university is one of the leading in the UK for its sports programs and there are more than 50 sports clubs to become involved with.
