The University of Gothenburg is the only university in Sweden that offers marine science courses in biology, chemistry, geology, and oceanography.
As a student of the Marine Sciences, you will perform your study tasks not only in the city of Gothenburg, but also at the research field stations Tjärnö and Kristineberg, and on board the University’s research vessels. The marine research at the University of Gothenburg is prominent in several research fields, and all teaching is done by active researchers. We offer a dynamic and interdisciplinary setting, with students, teachers and researchers from all over the world. Our teaching is student-centred, and problem-based field work plays an important part in our teaching.
