BSc (Hons) Applied Marine Zoology

Level 6 • Full-time • Cornwall College Newquay


What is more exciting or enigmatic than the life in our oceans? We still know so little about this alien world which makes up 98% of the living space on our planet, but with technology developing at such a pace more and more discoveries are being made. It is an exciting time to be involved in any aspect of marine science; a crucial one too, as our impact on the world’s oceans has never been greater. Foundation degree students who wish to progress to an honours degree can apply for third year entry to our top-up programme. You will need to have studied an appropriate foundation degree programme. The BSc has been designed to develop your interest and hone your professional skills to equip you for work in a growing industry. Situated on the beautiful coast of North Cornwall we are perfectly located for fieldwork and we have a strong practical element running through the programme. You will get hands-on experience in using sampling and survey equipment, as well as planning and undertaking marine surveys: from plankton trawls, to underwater video mapping and offshore marine life surveys. During your studies you will develop your understanding of marine animals; working from cellular processes up to whole organism and ecosystem levels. In Year 1 you will receive a firm grounding in aquatic ecology, marine and biological science as well as developing practical survey skills before moving on to more specialised modules, such as fish ecology and marine vertebrate biology and conservation in your second year. In your final year, you will choose from options such as GIS and marine environmental management, monitoring marine ecosystems and marine pollution and ecotoxicology as well as undertaking your own research for your honours project. Employers expect graduates to be skilled communicators and you will find that coursework takes a variety of formats; from scientific reports and posters, to presentations and discussions. In addition most modules have test or exam elements.

To us at Cornwall College Newquay, there’s nothing more exciting or enigmatic than our oceans. With so much still undiscovered, our marine habitats are the last of the wild frontiers left to explore. And with human impact on our underwater world at an all-time high, now is the crucial time to better understand and protect it. Our oceans need people who feel a shared desire to get involved with the big issues that we’re facing. To use science to challenge the status quo. To promote progressive change in the people around them through education and positive action. For over 20 years, Cornwall College Newquay has inspired thousands of students to make that all-important difference, using their passion as a guide. Our inspirational location has its part to play in our student’s success of course. There’s no better place to study marine life and conservation than in Cornwall, a county intricately linked to the seas around it. Where else will you find such a wide range of aquatic habitats within walking distance of where you study There’s wild and rugged headland, sheltered coves, freshwater streams, saltmarsh and sprawling estuaries. You’ll be living with a Marine Conservation Zone in your back yard. Not to mention, the even wider variety of habitats accessible to you just a short drive away. This unique location has cultivated a vibrant conservation community to match the surroundings, and your passion for the sea will be in good company. Students can take their pick of what to get involved in, benefiting from our strong ties with likeminded groups, charities and businesses such as Blue Reef Aquarium, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust, Newquay Marine Group, British Divers Marine Life Rescue and many more. It’s these collaborations that give our students an edge. Embedding industry-focused, ground-roots conservation work experience into your programme of study is what makes us tick. With our focus on the applied nature of foundation degrees; employability and real-world relevance is at the heart of everything we do. Think of it as a considerable emphasis on building practical skills and survey experience, underpinned by a strong academic and scientific core. In short, ours is a marine-focused degree experience unlike any other in the UK. The urgent need for passionate scientists who can speak for the ocean and its inhabitants has never been more vital than right now.

FdSc Marine Biology with Oceanography

Level 5 • Full-time • Cornwall College Newquay


The United Nations has proclaimed 2021-2030 to be the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Higher Education must now produce science graduates capable of realising the ambitious goals of this framework. These graduates must be able to grasp the global scope and timeliness of the issues at hand, to undertake the science required that will provide answers to questions as they arise, then convey these faithfully and articulately to whichever audience needs to hear them. You will be starting a journey on a marine programme like no other. To our knowledge, no other degree programme in the UK has embedded the Ocean Literacy programme promoted by UNESCO to this extent. We can find no other course that has based a first-year module around this programme by using the seven ocean literacy principles as Assessed Learning Outcomes. You will be embarking on a programme of study which embeds science communication. In each year, there is a specific module where science communication and education/interpretation/outreach are taught, and it forms part of the assessment. In addition, other modules have learning outcomes that make the dissemination of marine scientific knowledge a core attribute. In your second-year subjects you will engage with a suite of three 20-credit modules that are heavily active and field-based. You will collect data, maintain equipment and publish recordings in an approach that is designed to be as practical as possible, with repeated attempts at activities that then embed them with your applied skillset. These modules cover biological, chemical and physical oceanography, thereby equipping you with skillset to become technicians in these fields, or well prepared to gain higher level qualifications to enable research-related careers. You will be undertaking a module that cultivates your sense of entrepreneurship. This module teaches you the past achievements in marine resource use, allows you to develop your GIS skills in mapping the present marine resource use from a marine spatial planning perspective and then explore new products from marine resources – including learning about how these could be marketed. You will be based in a fantastic rural campus in the heart of Newquay, with a small, family feel. The staff are research active and bring that expertise to the class. We often encourage students who write exceptional and publishable project reports to co-write their work for scientific publication, with them as the lead author. You will be 10-30 minutes’ walk from a range of north Cornish coast habitats, a dive school with a range of dive courses on offer, a local and very active marine conservation group, a research-equipped vessel for coastal work and you will be 45 minutes’ drive from an additional range of south Cornish coast habitats. You will be four hours’ travel from the world-famous biodiversity hotspot of the Isles of Scilly, a location for which a residential fieldtrip could be based. There are a number of marine protected areas on your doorstep in which to learn your subject area, including one on your doorstep – Newquay and the Gannel Marine Conservation Zone. Finally, we have strong links with local conservation and marine organisations to develop your work-related experience, which is a very strong thread through the programme.
