Minister for Education, John Cortes visited our Europa Point Campus on Tuesday morning to meet with students on the MSc Marine Science and Climate Change programme. During the course of the visit, students shared their individual research interests with the Minister, and elaborated on what it was that drew them to the University of Gibraltar.
Dr Awantha Dissanayake, Head of the School of Marine Science said ‘It was a pleasure to host our Minister for Education and the Environment Rt Hon Min. John Cortes to meet our new MSc students class of 2021/22. This year were are honoured to welcome such a diversity of students to our shores from as far afield as Mexico, Brazil, China, Kyrgyzstan, Singapore, USA (e.g. California, Hawaii), Canada and UK and across Europe. We discussed the reasons why students have chosen Gibraltar as their home for the forthcoming year to study Marine Science and Climate Change which ranged from the quality of teaching to the practical nature of the programme. All students are taught that their research matters, needs to be conducted with scientific rigour and demonstrate societal impact shaping both personal and professional futures’.
‘The University is proud have a close working partnership with the Department of the Environment (DESCCH). The fact we have welcomed 26 additional Marine Science students from across the world speaks volumes of the impact of the programme, the growing international reputation of the University and its global reach’.
