Study to qualify as a marine researcher

Do you feel sincerely and passionately interested in marine science? If so, a third-cycle education might be for you.

It will provide you with more in-depth knowledge about your subject area and also the analytical tools to be able to formulate problems and analyse and make a critical assessment of the results.

A third-cycle education involves four years of full-time study, which normally includes a certain amount of tuition. This means that in reality the programme usually takes five years. To be accepted on a third-cycle programme, you will need to have a second-cycle qualification or to have taken courses worth the equivalent of 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits must have been achieved at second-cycle level. Moreover, special qualifications are required which means that one or more courses which have been particularly specified must be included in the programme. The requirements for special qualifications are stated in the study plan for each subject.

Today the University of Gothenburg is one of Sweden's foremost universities in marine research and marine studies, and has several of Sweden's most prominent researchers in this field.
