The University of Gothenburg is the leading university in Sweden for studies in the marine sciences. It is also the only university that can offer marine science courses in biology and chemistry as well as in geology and oceanography.
Gothenburg is situated at the west coast of Sweden. Here you will find coastal waters with higher diversity of marine species than anywhere else in Sweden, along with a relieving proximity to the open sea.
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 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. This provides a solid foundation for your studies in a way that is unique in the Swedish context.
