Delve Deeper - A distance learning course in Marine Biology from the University of Newcastle
This six month programme explains the biology and ecology of marine organisms.
Five monthly internet-based modules 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 content, and complete online assessments.
The final module is a five day field course.
This course runs every year, starting in March. It lasts a total of six months, with a new module released each month. You can progress through the materials at your own pace, and do not need to complete the module within any particular month. This format is to ensure the course is accessible to people with busy lives and careers.
The cost of the course is £595, and includes:
- All internet-delivered tuition
- Use of equipment and resources
- Field trips and lunches for the field course
The field course will extend and enhance your enjoyment of the learning process by bringing to life marine biology as a discipline. This will be delivered at and around our Dove Marine Laboratory in Cullercoats, near Newcastle upon Tyne.
There will be some assessment, and a Certificate of Participation will be awarded to those successfully completing the assignments.
The course is designed as a taster of more formal marine biology study leading to a degree.If you have any queries, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
