Missed our webinar? You can now watch it back here

The webinar is ideal for those considering applying to our BSc (Hons) Marine Science programme through clearing or applying for September 2021.

2nd year students Darcie Anderson and Nadja Hohenadl talk about their learning journey so far into the fascinating world of marine science at SAMS UHI in the spectacular location of Oban, Scotland. They talk you through the course, share personal experiences of studying at an active marine research institution, give insight into student life in Oban and explain why they think our #universityonthebeach is one of the top places in the world to study marine science.

Polly Crooks from student services also covers some FAQs, including questions on clearing and COVID-19.
