Summer Courses at Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences

About the organisation

Since modest beginnings as a seasonal field station in 1903, we’ve grown into an internationally recognized center for ocean science, atmospheric research and environmental monitoring and mapping. By investing in top-tier resident scientists and robust infrastructure—including R/V Atlantic Explorer, our UNOLS-compliant oceanographic research vessel—ASU BIOS stands as a fact-based voice in a crowded conversation around the state of our planet’s ocean and climate.

A unit of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University, and the School of Oceans Futures our global partnerships support our research programs across the different branches of oceanography—biological, chemical, physical and geological—as well as our work across the related disciplines of environmental science, resource monitoring and conservation and risk prediction.

About the courses

The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (ASU BIOS), a unit of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University, is accepting applications for two summer courses scheduled for 2024.

These popular summer courses are designed to immerse an international cohort in an intensive 3-week program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education. Founded in 1903, ASU BIOS is a world-class ocean science research and education facility. Our summer courses provide participants with the opportunity to expand their studies into subtropical environments and/or to investigate topics in ocean science that are not offered within the curricula of their home institutions. ASU BIOS has quick and easy access to a diverse array of subtropical marine habitats and ocean locations, which, when combined with lectures, integrated fieldwork, skills training and laboratory exercises create an optimal environment for experiential learning.

Applicants of all nationalities are eligible to apply for scholarship funding towards course fees, which include 3-weeks tuition, campus accommodation and meals (scholarship funding is not awarded for travel related expenses, visas or medical/travel insurance). Suitably qualified professionals working in relevant fields are also welcome to apply.
