Ocean and Earth Science at The University of Southampton:
Located in Hampshire in the South of England, The University of Southampton has a well-established reputation for its outstanding research and degree courses in Ocean and Earth Science. Our university is only 75 miles south-west of London and 19 miles north-west of Portsmouth. Ocean and Earth Science students are based at the prestigious National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS). We proudly produce graduates who are well equipped to enter employment in a wide range of careers and professions.
There are three types of Ocean and Earth Science degree programmes available at The University of Southampton - Bachelor of Science (BSc), Master of Science (MSc) and Integrated Master of Science (MSci). It is our ability to offer innovative courses, delivered in a research-led environment by leading experts in the field, which characterises our degree programmes. Undergraduate & postgraduate degrees are available in the fields of:
- Marine Biology
The BSc degree programmes are ideal if you are looking for science-based training with the aim of working in a related field or the wider job market. Once you have graduated it is then possible to continue on to a specialist MSc course. The four-year MSci programmes provide a more in-depth approach to our disciplines.
The National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS) is the integrated collaboration between the Southampton-based part of the Natural Environment Research Council’s National Oceanography Centre, and the University of Southampton’s Ocean and Earth Science. NOCS is the largest single grouping of marine and Earth scientists in the UK, and one of the largest in Europe. We are known for our relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere, which affords students a stimulating environment in which to learn and acquire essential scientific and key work skills.
The Centre is comprehensively equipped with laboratory facilities and modern instrumentation and is also the operational base for the UK’s fleet of deep sea research vessels and associated equipment such as Autosub, an autonomous underwater vehicle capable of diving to depths of 6 kilometres.
“Although the trips train us to be field geologists they also are great fun, and give us a chance to get to know the other students and lecturers really well - maybe that’s why Geology is rated so highly as a subject in student satisfaction surveys!”
- Alex Coleman, MSci Geology
“The geology programme offered a lot field work experience, much better than being restricted to lectures and both the marine biology and geology departments have excellent academic reputations.”
- Alice Christianson, BSc Geology with Marine Biology
“The opportunities are phenomenal. The mixture of theoretical and hands on learning is what I think makes this course so much fun and keeps it interesting.”
- Denise Herrera, MSci Marine Biology
