Marine Conservation Diploma

Level 2 • Full-time • Falmouth Marine School


If you have always dreamt of having a career within the marine sector, then this course will offer you the first step into studying the basics of Marine Biology, ecology and Conservation. This introductory course gives you a flavour of the different avenues and aspects of biology, ecology and conservation that you may wish to specialise in within your further studies. The course offers a mixture of classroom theory and practical experience, within an array of marine environments. You will be looking at developing a multitude of survey skills using flora and fauna to be able to complete records which will then give an indicator on environments issues and management plans to support conservation. Within our established Aquaria at Falmouth Marine School, you will gain hands on experience for the health and welfare of our species and the systems that support them. The above skills will then support you in securing a work experience placement in any national Aquarium should you wish or a conservation industry of your choice. Embedded within the course, there will be opportunities to conduct rocky shore surveys as well as pelagic surveys on a vessel in the Fal Estuary. Should your passion lead you directly into the ocean environment, there is an additional opportunity for you to undertake a PADI diving qualification. You’ll be learning from experienced marine biology and ecology professionals as well as meeting successful persons from National and International Marine related industries on our unique Industry Day. You will be encouraged to network and make future contact with them to support you learning journey into employment.
