This year will herald the second year of South Africas Class Afloat aboard our very own SA Agulhas II, a state-of-the-art icebreaker that is fully equipped for all marine research activities. After a very successful maiden SEAmester last year applications are now open for this year’s edition. The SEAmester introduces marine science as an applied and cross-disciplinary field and up to 50 students (Honours/BTech, MSc/MTech, Interns) can apply to join this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Traditional class-room lectures are combined with hands-on ship-based deck activities under the tutelage of 30 oceanographic, fisheries, biogeochemical and biological experts. To find out more read the South African Journal of Sciences article here.
