27/04/2016: Masters courses in aquaculture at Harper Adams University
MRes (Masters in Research) MSc (Masters by taught courses and project)

Harper Adams University in England are proud to offer unique opportunities for post graduate training in aquaculture with a focus on fish nutrition, feed technology, fish health management and welfare, business and marketing leading to the award of Masters.

Based in beautiful rural England, within a first class campus setting you will experience academic excellence in selected multidisciplinary subjects underpinning the aquaculture sector with experts in the field and links with key industries and stake-holders. You will be supported by a strong academic team in the key specialised areas in a format comprising intensive short modules delivered on a one week block.

Harper Adams is uniquely positioned due to its long history of the agritech sciences and terrestrial animal production (poultry, pigs and ruminants) and related food sciences that can provide new innovative approaches to similar issues in fish culture systems.

Students will gain from the latest developments in the science and technology of this rapidly expanding sector of agribusiness on a local, national, European and global scale.

The programmes are run over a one year period and we have now received Advanced Training Partnerships with associated institutions to promote modules on fish health and disease as well as nutrition and feed technology. The modules and course would appeal to graduates in marine biology, fisheries & aquatic sciences and environmental biology.

Animal nutrition, production and veterinary biosciences students as well as veterinarians would advance their knowledge and skills in aquaculture. There are considerable opportunities for jobs in aquaculture where increasingly training with experience is required and a Masters is also a natural progression to higher degrees such as a PhD.

A major component is the project element that spans about 5 months for the typically taught MSc course and ~7 months for the MRes Masters encompassing research training and the project as the main focus for the programme.

The Masters programmes have been fully validated academically and endorsed by industry and can be taken on a part-time basis as well as full-time. With agreement, many students may undertake the project at locations within the UK or abroad in specialist facilities or at their work place if feasible.

Harper Adams University has excellent science laboratories and is currently developing new fish holding facilities for research and training on campus. The university was recently awarded the status of ‘University of the Year’ in Britain by students nationally.
