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 (choice 1 and 2). You will receive an e-mail from the coordination office confirming your track. In specific cases and with a good motivation, you can still change this track until October 1st, taking into account the availability in the tracks. 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 'coulored band' during the entire programme.
