Call for UK undergraduate and postgraduate marine studies students to complete a survey about marine science fieldwork.

We are looking for undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in marine science degrees at UK institutions to participate in a research study running from February to September 2022The purpose of this study is to explore the perceptions of fieldwork as a requirement for entry into a career in marine sciences and raise awareness as digital twinning as an alternative entryway into the career. We aim to gather the views of both people entering the career as well as those currently working in the career with the goal of understanding what can be done to increase diversity and inclusivity within this discipline and will produce a short course highlighting examples of job profiles and career paths to support entry into it.

If you are interested, please visit to complete the questionnaire, which should take approximately 15 minutes. At the end of the questionnaire, you will be given the opportunity to participate in an optional focus group.  All focus group participants will receive a gift voucher for their participation.

The views contributed here will help to shape the promotion of diversity and inclusivity within marine science. This research has been reviewed and approved by the University of Glasgow MVLS Ethics Committee. If you have any questions, please contact: Dr Anna McGregor ([email protected]).
