Southampton's definitely the first one that comes to mind since it's the home of the National Oceanography Centre and one of the leading universities in the world for the subject. I think Liverpool's also good for Marine Biology since there's an NOC branch there too.

Do you live near the sea now? presumably volunteering with a 'friends of' group e.g. http://www.deeestuary.co.uk/hilbre/vwork.htm or taking part in a coastal wildlife survey would look good on your PS

Hi! My son is doing A level French, Spanish, Biology, Chemistry & Marine Science. He has been advised to give up Marine Science. (We live in Spain by the sea & my son sailed for 7 years and has his PADI) He is considering a degree in Marine Biology. I know Marine Science is not a facilitating subject but he enjoys it! Is it worth doing? Thanks!

Entry requirements vary but I think it's fine to keep Marine Science as long as he drops either French or Spanish - he definitely should not drop Biology or Chemistry.
