Marine Biology at St. George's University

Come to the Caribbean to study marine biology!

It is difficult to imagine a more exciting location to study than the islands and the waters surrounding the Tri-island State of Grenada.

The island's rich marine resources include extensive coral reefs, seagrass meadows and mangrove forests.

St. George's University has a recently built, and well-equipped, marine station located on the True Blue Campus, on the beach!

The marine station has a teaching laboratory/lecture room that will accommodate up to 40 students.

An open seawater circulation system feeds a series of wet benches and tanks allows for the maintenance of a range of marine organisms for teaching and research purposes.

The bay in front of the marine station is a wonderful snorkelling spot that provides safe and easy access to lush seagrass beds and an array of reef vertebrates and invertebrates.
Grenada has numerous healthy, well-preserved and diverse reefs offering boundless diving opportunities. Two marine protected areas have been established and many more are planned.

In addition to the abundant and diverse marine natural resources and spectacular sandy beaches, Grenada affords a diverse array of tropical terrestrial study sites.

These include lush tropical rain forest and elfin woodland, fringing and lagoon mangrove systems, volcanic crater lakes, rivers, streams and sulphur springs.

Having received little research attention to date, Grenada's marine and tropical environments abound with research opportunities.

SGU has hosted visits by a number of scientists from the Caribbean, North America and Europe.

We are keen to support and collaborate with students, scientists and companies who require the use of an educational and/or research base in the Caribbean.

In addition to offering undergraduate courses to students based at SGU on a full time basis we are able to accept students for shorter-term study periods. Attendance of SGU as part of a semester or year abroad is possible.

Grenada is a prime location for field study visits for students at high schools, colleges or universities, or simply groups of people interested in short term continuing education courses.

Technical and teaching support can be made available by St. George’s University staff and faculty. University accommodation is available to visiting groups during the summer vacation (approximately mid-May until the end of July). We hope to be offering a summer course program for college and university level students in the near future.
