A number of our research areas, such as the University of Hull International Fisheries Institute and The Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies, have consultancy and research links with government agencies, including the Environment Agency, Natural England, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, and the Association of Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authorities, who regularly employ graduates.
The practical and multidisciplinary skills you learn are much sought after in governmental and non-governmental organisations. The field and laboratory skills are ideal preparation for a scientific officer career with organisations such as the Environment Agency or Fisheries Agencies, and linking these core biological skills to an understanding of marine management and environmental impact assessment may help towards a career in consultancy.
Students who are more conservation and education focused might pursue a career with a wildlife trust or conservation organisation. Students who develop diving qualifications could end up as scientific divers or dive instructors. Some of our research-focused students continue their studies by taking a taught Masters degree or by progressing onto doctorate or research Masters. There are opportunities for further study within the University of Hull.
