Marine biology

Dive into the marine world and study the diversity of life from the deep sea to estuaries. Beyond evolutionary and behavioural biology, learn about the conservation and management of marine environments and how to protect these valuable and vulnerable ecosystems.

St Andrews is located on the shores of the North Sea near grey and common seal colonies and bottlenose dolphin feeding areas. This makes it the ideal place to study marine wildlife in its natural habitat. Fieldwork and diving expeditions to locations such as the Antarctic and Indonesia are also options for many programmes.
