Enrolments are now available online for the Great Barrier Reef Study

This year The University of Queensland, Australia is offering the Great
Barrier Reef Study Program for international and domestic students from 13
June - 9 August 2005.


The Great Barrier Reef Study Program provides students with an opportunity
for the ultimate marine education experience through a unique program
comprised of six short course options undertaken in Queensland's spectacular
marine environments, at world class research stations. 


Three courses are taught at Heron Island Research Station on a coral cay and
two at Moreton Bay Research Station on North Stradbroke Island. The courses
are short intensive courses during which students will be immersed in the
marine environment. They will have daily lectures, field practical and
laboratory sessions so that they become familiar with a range of marine
organisms and processes and acquire first hand research skills through
conducting short group research projects.


The following courses are offered for 2005:

Coastal Zone Management

Marine Microscopy and Microanalysis

Marine Neurobiology

Tropical Marine Invertebrates

Coral Reef Ecosystems
