Student Opportunities 

At the Marine Biological Association, we have a vibrant student community, with around 20 full-time PhD students and an annual cohort of Master students in association with University of Plymouth.   

MBA Student Members receive a range of benefits including discounts on professional courses and other events.

We also run an annual conference for postgraduate students, run by and for students. This Conference is made possible thanks to the Plymouth Marine Science and Education Foundation (PlyMSEF), and is an invaluable stepping stones on your professional pathway, offering you the chance to present your research in a supportive environment whilst also learning from others. 

Find out more about how to join the MBA as a Student Member and explore options for undergraduate and postgraduate students and those early in their career.
