I thought you might be interested in hearing a bit about our exciting and innovative course on Marine Mammals & Turtle Biology, hosted by ourselvesh ere at UMBSM and with fieldwork in the Clyde and on and around the beautiful island of Mull.
This course is intended both to provide students with a broad knowledge and understanding of marine mammals and turtles, and to use these charismatic large animals to illustrate concepts of marine ecology and animal behaviour.
Taught during the summer vacation at UMBSM and on the Isle of Mull, it is pitched at final year undergraduate level. However, it is also accessible to students who have a strong personal interest in marine biology. It would also be valuable as the basis for a masters-level course,especially for students with no prior knowledge of large marine vertebrates.
The dates of the course this year are:
Group 1: 4-15 July 2008
Group 2: 8-19 July 2008
and the cost is 665 including full board & lodging at UMBSM; self-cateringat Arle Lodge near Tobermory, Isle of Mull; boat trips; and travel between Millport and Tobermory.
Please note that accommodation at UMBSM is on a shared-room basis. There is a single occupancy supplement of 57.05.
For further information, please refer to our website at www.gla.ac.uk/Acad/Marine and click on "Teaching" then "stand-alone".
To enquire about reserving a place on the course, contact
Dr D McCafferty of the Department of Adult & Continuing Education in Glasgow University firstname.lastname@example.org or myself here at the University Marine Biological Station.
I shall look forward to speaking with you.
