Asking for my friend.
He wants to do Marine Biology as a research career but doesn't know if doing straight Biology and then MSc Marine Biology would be better as a backup.
Any advice for him?

If he applies to do a four year MSc, then the course is quite likely to have the same basic biology modules for the first couple of years, so that flexibility will be built in anyway, with the option to swap before taking the third year options. For instance, see:

and compare with:

There is no harm doing a marine biology undergraduate degree, but doing a broad-based biology degree would not prevent one from becoming a marine biologist either. Financially it makes more sense to do a MSci rather than a BSc and then a MSc - a number of universities offer MSci degrees in Marine Biology, Southampton being one of the best.
