Designed to meet the needs of an expanding sports fisheries market, as well as the worldwide aquaculture industry, this one year top-up programme will give you the necessary scientific knowledge, managerial skills and analytical capabilities for a successful career. From the outset you will build on your previous experiences and gain an insight into the importance of this sector for food production and sustainability. You will take a 'hands on' approach and learn about intensive aquaculture.
The Intensive Aquaculture course aims to equip students with the expertise to effectively manage intensive recirculation aquaculture systems. It also helps students to evaluate system suitability for intensively cultured species. The Current Issues course will examine selected issues in a specific cognate area within aquaculture and fisheries management industries. The Data Analysis course aims to equip students with the statistical analysis and presentation methods to carry out critical analysis of laboratory or field data. The Advanced Management Studies course aims to equip students with the expertise to effectively manage a land-based enterprise.
The programme also includes a dissertation project. This aims to develop the ability of the student to work independently in applying his/her knowledge to the analysis and solution of specific problems, in a related area of their choice.
Students also undertake a work-based learning project, which provides opportunities for students to identify and critically evaluate the range of opportunities within industry and decide on an area of specialist personal development in relation to their career aspirations within the industry.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
