    BSc Marine Biology


Swansea was one of the first universities in the UK to offer a BSc degree in Marine Biology. Our degree is internationally recognised for its quality and breadth of study. We are ideally located for the study of marine biology with the nearby Gower Peninsula providing a variety of study habitats. The department has a research vessel, the RV Noctiluca, which is used extensively for the teaching of marine biologists. The course has a strong emphasis on fieldwork, boat work and the development of key practical skills.


A levels: grades ABB-BBB, to include Biology or Human Biology, or equivalent

Welsh Baccalaureate: Pass acceptable as equivalent to an A grade A level

BTEC: DDM plus A level grade B in Biology/Human Biology

Scottish Highers: ABBCC to include Biology grade B

Access to HE (Science): Pass with Distinction (24 Dist to include 3 in Biology, plus 15 Merits)

IB: 33-32 (including 5 in Biology or Human Biology at Higher Level)

IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component) or equivalent English test

We may consider other qualifications if they are Science-based, if they are equivalent to A-levels, and if the content of the qualification includes significant amounts of Biology (i.e., equivalent to A-level Biology).

All applications will be considered on an individual basis, and we will look at the whole application when deciding whether to make an offer of a place, including: the balance, nature and quality of A-level, AS and GCSE subjects (or equivalent); personal statement and referee’s comments.

General Studies and Key Skills qualifications are normally excluded from our offers.
