The Marine Institute is inviting students to apply for a number of work experience placements in many exciting areas for this summer 2016. The bursaries are worth €275per week for an 8 to 12 week placement (bursary dependant).They will be based in various locations including the Marine Institute Oranmore, Co. Galway, Newport, Co. Mayo and Wilton Park House, Dublin and other locations/ ports around the country.
The Marine Institute's Bursary Programme provides valuable practical experience for students, in areas of research such Marine Fisheries, Salmon Management, Aquaculture, Environment, Communications, Research Office, Oceanography, Library, Web development, Maritime Development and Fish Health Unit.
The Bursary Programme is aimed at undergraduates of Universities, Institutes of Technology and National Institutes for Higher Education. The Scheme is strictly limited to undergraduates who will have completed two years study in a relevant discipline by the beginning of June.
