SEAmester introduces marine science as an applied and cross-disciplinary field to students . Its long‐term vision is aimed at building capacity within the marine sciences by co‐ordinating cross‐disciplinary research projects through a highly innovative programme.

The strength of SEAmester is that postgraduate students combine theoretical classroom learning with the application of this knowledge through ship-based and hands-on research. The state‐of‐the‐art research vessel, SA Agulhas II, provides the ideal teaching and research platform for SEAmester; its size, comfort and shipboard facilities allow large groups of students and lecturers to productively interact over a period of 10 days.

SEAmester will depart on the 24th June returning to Cape Town on the 4th July 2024. Travel arrangements and costs will be made through the SEAmester programme for all students residing outside of the Western Cape. PLEASE NOTE: Applicants to be aware that the cruise dates may be subject to change by a few days.

Apply by 15 April 2024. Candidate needs to be attached to a tertiary institute either as an intern or student. For more information and download application form, access
