What's it like to study a PhD in Marine Sciences?
Working under the guidance of an expert supervisor, you'll work towards completion of a thesis that will make an original contribution to the field of Marine Sciences. You'll have some departmental training sessions and there may also be some core training programmes you can attend.
Most PhD programmes in Marine Sciences have a research training centre attached, meaning you will likely have access to equipment to aid your research. You may also be encouraged to attend conferences or publish your work to promote your research.
Some PhDs in Marine Sciences also come with a research aim already attached. You may also have the option of proposing your own research project, though this is less common.
