Experience a Week as a Marine Biologist with IMAS

Applications are now open for year 11 & 12 students from around the country who would like to participate in IMAS & UTAS’s “A Practical Introduction to Temperate Marine Biology” course during the April school holidays.

This predominately field-based unit consists of 5 days on picturesque Maria Island on the Tasmanian East Coast. The unit is open to only 24 students and is designed to engage, challenge, excite and inspire you through a hands-on marine science program.

  • Transport from Hobart to Maria Island return, including ferry crossings
  • All catering while on Maria Island
