University of Southampton - Ocean and Earth Science

As a world centre for degrees in ocean and Earth science, the University of Southampton - Ocean and Earth Science seeks to understand how the ocean fits within the dynamic Earth system.

Our unique waterfront campus, based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, has allowed us to recruit top-level researchers and educators from around the world. We work within the areas of geochemistry, geology and geophysics, marine biogeochemistry, marine biology and ecology, palaeoceanography and palaeoclimate and physical oceanography.

Through degree programmes in oceanography, marine biology, geology and geophysics, our ocean and Earth science students have access to research vessels, ocean technology and opportunities for fieldwork and scientific cruises not available in standard university environments.
