Study aquaculture

We run innovative aquaculture and marine biology degrees as well as training and continuing professional development courses.

Our degree courses

Our degrees teach students about all subjects relevant to global aquaculture, including the culture of many species such as crocodiles and turtles.

We'll teach you everything you need to know for your career in aquaculture, marine biology and related areas such as pharmacy and biotechnology.

We use our research and expertise to ensure our teaching at the forefront of new science in aquaculture. 

I chose to study at the University of Stirling because it is one of the best universities in the world. The Faculty members are highly experienced and the employability rate of the graduates from the Aquaculture courses, is exceptionally high. The lecturers always try to help solve our problems with a smiling face. The campus is spectacular. Staff members are extremely helpful and I feel this place is like my second home.
