From September 2017 onwards, IMBRSea (the International Master in Marine Biological Resources) replaces the EMBC+ programme. See www.imbrsea.eu for more information about the programme and application procedure.
The International Master of Science in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (EMBC+) is a two year joint international master programme offered by a consortium of 6 European universities and a worldwide network of over 45 associate members.
Students can choose their study pathways to suit their research interests and career aspirations. EMBC+ students study at a minimum of two European universities, with the first year undertaken at either Ghent University, Bremen University or the University of Algarve. The third semester can be taken at either Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) or the University of Oviedo, with the final thesis work being undertaken at any partner university or associate member.
The EMBC+ programme offers extensive practical and laboratory work opportunities, including an internship and the annual EMBC+ spring school. The spring school brings together all students and several teachers to collaborate on specialised research topics at the Sven Lovén Centre for Marine Sciences in Sweden.
