The programme offers the chance to broaden the science background of an undergraduate degree, while allowing advanced level specialisation in one or more aspects of the field. The masters course is a conversion course and provides background material.

You can choose from a range of flexible pathways depending on your research interest. You will develop specific knowledge and skills through your selection of modules and choice of subject for your research project.

The range of pathways include: Physical oceanography and climate dynamics, Ocean remote sensing, Marine biology and ecology, Marine biogeochemistry and Marine geophysics.

Career opportunities
* Conversion programme broadens your knowledge base, and offers wider career options.


* A wide range of practical, high-impact careers


* May be taken prior to a PhD in Oceanography

The MSc programme is in two parts: formal instruction (including lectures, practicals and boatwork) followed by individual research. In semester one all students complete a series of basic introductory modules that cover all the disciplines of oceanography. Boat-based practicals in local waters will introduce you to some of the measurement and analysis techniques in the marine sciences. As well as these compulsory modules, you will also study two optional modules.

Along with a choice of options in semester two, you will work on a literature review to provide a basis for your research project work. Following the end of semester two, all students work full-time on their chosen research project, producing a final dissertation by the end of September.

Staff at NOCS offer a wide range of project topics in their area of research, which could involve laboratory work, analysis of existing data sets, or fieldwork. You can also suggest your own ideas for research, after consulting with your tutor.

Graduates in any scientific discipline are eligible to apply, although it is desirable that you have a strong background in at least one of the following: * Physics * Chemistry * Mathematics * A biological science * Environmental Science * Geology.You must have or expect to achieve a second-class Honours degree. A minimum of AS level mathematics (or equivalent) is recommended. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 580 TOEFL iBT® test: 92 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
