About your Course

The world’s oceans are home to one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. With creatures capable of surviving the crushing pressures of the Mariana Trench or the freezing waters of the Antarctic.

The Marine Zoology Diploma will give you the opportunity to develop a solid foundation of knowledge about marine life. You will study the aspects of evolution and how animals have adapted to their environments from the tropical seas to freezing ocean waters. 

This diploma can start you towards a new career working within the marine sector, wildlife conservation or non-profits campaigning for better legislation to protect our oceans. 

You’ll learn about the life cycle within the ocean by exploring various marine invertebrates and vertebrates. This will give an understanding of the food web and the importance of the dispersal of phytoplankton and zooplankton.

Part of the course specifically focuses on marine conservation. This will broaden your knowledge of current issues and challenges related to climate change and the preventative measures in place.

Upon completion of this qualification, you’ll have gained a strong understanding of the core concepts of marine zoology. Ideal for aspiring marine biologists and conservationists who wish to continue their studies further at university and beyond.
