Hello and welcome!
We are the Marine Science Society - home for all things marine and ocean related. We focus on the three main specialisations taught at Plymouth University; oceanography, hydrography and conversation.
We are reviewing the society this year and have a host of great (Covid-19 safe!) events and socials planned - as well as a clear plan on things to do depending on government guidence in the coming months!
We'll host tutorials on Matlab and talks from both university-based and external speakers, not to mention other sessions in which members can come together and help each other with work and ask any questions on your mind relating to course study and external sources!
Our aims for this academic year (depending on Covid-19 guidence) are:
1. Provide extra-curricular activities for students interested in the Marine Sciences
This will be achieved through extra practicals in the Marine Station, in the lab or out in the field and through some workshops aimed at improving scientific writing, exam revision, skills-based CV writing and Matlab help sessions.
2. Create an extra point of interaction between students and staff
We aim to work closely with lecturers and marine technicians at the University of Plymouth. We also believe that it would be beneficial to encourage interactions between each degree stage for sharing new ideas.
3. Organise social activities for members to develop connections and improve networking
As well as social nights out, we would love to give the opportunity for members to attend some residential and trips to events that will showcase their commitment and boost their degree application.
4. Work with local societies, businesses and charities
Getting involved in the local community is a great way of motivating members to not only study hard but make wider connections and find new skills and opportunities. We would love to host some social evenings for students, staff and business representatives to create a wide network.
