Your final semester largely consists of designing, conducting, and analysing a small research project which will draw together learning from previous modules. Research topics are varied and are guided by your personal interests. Regular supervision is provided by Institute staff who specialise in that particular research area.
Projects can be laboratory or field-based, and can be located here in Stirling, or elsewhere in the UK or overseas. Overseas projects are encouraged and past projects have been located throughout Europe, USA, Bermuda, and the Seychelles. Projects offer an opportunity to gain valuable work experience as they can often involve carrying out your research in industry or government research facilities.
This module is taken by Marine Biology BSc students only.
