The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) offers a suite of fall semester courses, designed to immerse students in the study of marine science, with a program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education.
Founded in 1903, BIOS is a world-class ocean science research and education facility (www.bios.edu). BIOS courses provide students with the opportunity to expand their studies to tropical and subtropical environments or to investigate topics in ocean science, which are not offered within the curricula of their home institutions.
BIOS's Fall Semester is divided into two sections. The first 10 weeks are dedicated to 3 courses which run concurrently: Coral Reef Ecology, Marine Invertebrate Zoology and Research Diving Methods. The final 4 weeks are dedicated to the Marine Biology & Oceanographic Research course during which students conduct independent research projects on a subject of their choice. Credit for all courses has been prearranged with regularly participating universities. Other students may obtain academic credit for the semester, pending exchange of information between BIOS and the student's home institution, or by enrolling through a partner school. More detail on the Fall Semester courses, as well as Eligibility, Credit-Transfer & Application information, Semester Fees and former student testimonials are available here (http://www.bios.edu/education/fall_semester/).
Applications are currently being accepted, the deadline to apply is July 1st, 2014. Students will arrive September 1st and depart December 6th.
Please don't hesitate to contact us should you require additional information on BIOS's Education programs.
