IMBRSea covers a wide, yet consistent, range of subjects within the marine sciences and biological resources. With an emphasis on marine biological and ecological processes, the programme links biology of marine organisms and environmental studies with subjects in marine policy and planning.
The subjects are covered through Thematic Modules in Specialization Tracks to prepare the next generation of scientists who need to understand the marine ecosystem functioning and conservation of biodiversity to work in biological resources exploitation and management. IMBRSea offers a unique combination of Courses, Professional Practices, Annual Symposia, Joint Schools, Thesis subjects in an integrated programme to learn how to develop blue biotechnologies in a sustainable way.
During the selection process you indicate your preferred specialization track within IMBRSea. But it is only until the early start of the programme that you need to fix this decision (1 October).
After this date, you can no longer make changes to the specialisation track since the track is mentioned on the final diploma and diploma supplement.
The specialization track defines your pathway throughout the programme in terms of mobility and course selections. You basically remain in the same 'coloured band' during the entire programme.
