Where can Marine Science take you?


The career opportunities available to our graduates are diverse and exciting.

Some students progress to postgraduate degrees at universities within New Zealand or overseas. Others find employment with regional councils, port companies, exploration companies, universities, polytechnics, Colleges of Education, Crown Research Institutes, private consultancy firms, the Department of Conservation, Greenpeace, and the Ministry of Fisheries. Still others become involved in public education, teaching science, and science policy. Some of our graduates manage their own businesses in fields such as aquaculture.
