This Delve Deeper course is devised for people with a fascination for marine life and the natural world, who would like to pursue this interest while juggling busy lives and careers. The course is designed as a taster of more formal marine biology study leading to a degree.

This five month programme explains the biology and ecology of marine organisms. There are five monthly internet-based modules that cover the coasts of the UK, open oceans, polar seas, tropical coral reefs, creatures of the deep and other topics. Participants can download and work through the content, and then complete online assessments.

You can progress through the materials at your own pace, and do not need to complete the module within any particular month.

The cost of the course is £520, and includes all internet-delivered tuition and ongoing support.

There will be some assessment, and a Certificate of Participation will be awarded to those successfully completing the assignments.


You could be a diver, sea-angler, surfer, or simply just have a keen interest in marine life. If you share our respect and fascination for the marine environment, you'll fit right in!

    • Adult Learners must be 18 years or older on 1st March 2021
