Hi guys, I have 2 questions if I'm honest. One is about the title, the other slightly related.
Basically I know Bangor is a great university for Marine Biology however they do Marine Biology and Applied Marine Biology. Now evidently Applied Marine Biology sounds more fun being out in the field more and applying the knowledge learnt in class however I was curious as to which the best avenue would be to take wanting to do a Masters and Phd down the line.
A masters and Phd is very primary research and field based however would the knowledge obtained in the classic format of lectures and so on in the normal marine biology course put me in a better position later on in life?
I do appreciate anyone who takes the time to answer THANKYOU

I know that this is slightly late, but I'm applying to university this year too for marine biology and Bangor is my top choice. I'm going to apply for the applied Marine Biology course as I had a quick look at the course modules for both, and I am pretty sure that they were both the same except for the placement year which I think is pretty valuable.
About the Masters and Phd, I'm not sure but is something i'd be interested in finding out about as it's also what I want to move onto afterwards.
