Applications open: Master 2 “Oceanography and Applications” – Deadline 31 July 2022

The International Master 2 in Oceanography and Applications is co-hosted by the University of Abomey Calavi (UAC, Benin) and the University of Toulouse III (UT3, France). Since 2008, it has allowed more than 130 students from different countries of West and Central Africa to study the physics, chemistry and biology of the ocean.

This Master covers a wide spectrum, from ocean circulation theory to oceanographic instrumentation and coastal erosion. Courses are tought by professors from the two host universities (UAC and UT3), but also by researchers from West Africa, France, Brazil and Germany.

With a double degree from UAC and UT3, several of our students have pursued doctoral research in Africa, Europe and North and South America. The courses also provide a solid foundation in environmental science, appropriate for candidates wishing to work in governmental or non-governmental organizations concerned with environmental risk management..

For more information on the course program, please visit our website.

Holders of a Master’s degree in physics, mathematics, environmental sciences, hydrology, or any other equivalent degree are eligible to apply. A very limited number of scholarships (full or training fees) will be awarded on the basis of applications. Mobility grants will probably also be offered in order to carry out part of the research internship in France.

The deadline for the submission of applications and grants is July 31, 2022. The selection of applications will be made at the beginning of August and the beginning of the courses is scheduled for September 19, 2022 in Cotonou.
