Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea) (Erasmus Mundus) from The University of Oviedo builds upon the strengths of the previous International Master of Science in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (EMBC+), and helps to prepare students for the rapidly evolving demands of the blue bio-economy, as well as research in the sustainable use of marine biological resources.


Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea) (Erasmus Mundus) from The University of Oviedo covers a wide, yet consistent range of subjects within the fields of marine sciences and biological resources. With an emphasis on marine biological and ecological processes, the program links the biology of marine organisms and environmental studies with application of marine conservation, management, policy and planning. IMBRSea is packed with activities during the two years of studies. Students first go to one of 6 universities where they will all follow the same Fundamental Modules, with the same common basic subjects. In the second semester it is time for the Thematic modules and Professional Practice. Students are able to choose which classes to take within their Thematic Modules and are able to compete for various placements offered by our Partners for the Professional Practice.
