Master course for tomorrow's leaders in global aquaculture

NEXT INTAKE - September 2022 (Application deadline 28th February 2022)

ACES is an amazing 2-year programme that allows an international group of students to study aquaculture in Scotland (semester 1), Crete (Greece, semester 2) and Nantes (France, semester 3) with intensive involvement from industry.

As an ACES graduate, our alumni will contribute to developing a global aquaculture industry that produces sustainable seafood for a growing human population. Students build a lasting, international network and lay the foundation for outstanding employment opportunities.

ACES is coordinated by SAMS. Please visit our dedicated website for all relevant information or email
