Marine Education in the Northwest Germany Marine Research Association
(Nordwestverbund Meeresforschung)

The northwestern region of Germany is internationally recognized for its excellence in marine, polar and climate research. Together, universities and research institutions build a strong training network for early career scientists. Within the Northwest German Marine Research Association (Nordwestverbund Meeresforschung) Structured M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs guarantee marine education and supervision on its highest level.

Collaboration Network of Marine Graduate Programs

International Max Planck Research School of Marine Microbiology (marmic)

Helmholtz Graduate School for Polar and Marine Research

Bremen International Graduate School for Marine Science

Leibniz Graduate School at Center for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT)

PhD programme at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM)

Postgraduate Programme Environmental Physics - PEP

The language of education in all graduate courses is English. In most programs, international students make up half of the student body. Close cooperation between the research institutions ensures that early career scientists are welcome to participate in trainings offered by programs other than their own. An overview over study and training opportunities for Master and Ph.D. students in marine science are shown on the common website of the programmes at the Northwest Germany Marine Research Association (Nordwestverbund Meeresforschung).
