An academic understanding of ocean life across the world has never been more important. Ocean covers more than 70% of the world’s surface. Its future, the future of its inhabitants and the future of our planet are bound together.
Swansea University is ideally located for marine biology field work. The nearby Gower Peninsula offers a variety of study habitats from rocky shorelines and steep cliffs enclosing small sheltered bays, to sand dunes, salt marsh and estuarine mudflats.
Over the course of this three-year degree you may study the spectacular ecosystems on our doorstep and natural life off distant lands such as India, Borneo and Puerto Rico.
Studying biology at Swansea gives you access to world-leading teaching and cutting edge facilities across ecological, physiological and molecular studies.
If you don’t have the necessary entry requirements to enter on to the first year of a degree, you may be offered a place on a degree course with an integrated foundation year.
