Marine Sciences lessons are taught in English by international faculty and world-class scientists and researchers.
Marine Sciences students, after completion of the first common teachings, can choose among three different tracks: Environment, Bio-Ecology, Human Geography.
Practical activities will be run in the Maldives at the MaRHE Center, a center for research and high education fully equipped for students and researchers, offering top-level scientific labs. International researchers will join to explain ground breaking research techniques in the Marine Sciences sector. Faculty will give face to face or video lectures; regardless of whether students attend class on-campus or remotely, a technology platform will allow them to follow and download lessons, read Syllabi, submit questions, take part in didactic chat rooms.
Each student will have access to library services, including lending of books, databases for scientific consultation, articles downloading, and much more.
