13 Time-honoured German universities…

14 …can tend to look more like this today

17 80101 What are the chances of getting a job? Job opportunities for oceanographers in New Zealand are limited. Many people who study oceanography go overseas to work, where opportunities are better. Stiff competition for oceanographer positions Competition for jobs is strong because only about 35 oceanographers work in New Zealand, and they tend to stay in the job for a long time, making vacancies rare. Tuition for 2012 for Geoscience: c. $ Nz. 23,300 per annum

20 Detailed programme description Print Title of the programme M.Sc. Marine Geosciences Level of study Master programme Name of the university UNIVERSITÄT BREMEN Name of the university (English) University Bremen Name of the faculty Department of Geosciences City 28359 BREMEN Country Germany Field(s) of study Geology Description of the curriculum The programme promotes geoscientific aspects of climate, resources and technologies in the marine environment. These issues are under investigation by the leading German marine research institutions in Bremen and Bremerhaven. The multidisciplinary nature of these research fields as well as the application of up-to-date scientific methods, instruments and computing strongly influences teaching methods and topics. The courses emphasize the understanding and modelling of processes and dynamics of marine geosystems. The programme offers courses in biogeochemical processes; climate change; marine environmental archives; marine resources and geotechnology; physics and petrology of the ocean crust; sedimentary structures and processes. Start of the study programme October Standard period of study 24 months ECTS credits 120 credits Title of degree awarded M.Sc. in Marine Geosciences Educational admission requirements Bachelor degree (or equivalent) in geosciences Language admission requirements English skills, level C1 according to the European Framework, e.g. TOEFL (pbt/cbt/ibt): 550/213/80 or IELTS band 6,5 Other admission requirements Conclusive letter of motivation Application deadline July 15 Tuition fees (per year) Domestic/EU-Students: 198€; Non-EU/international students: 198€ Other costs (per year) Enrolment fees (per semester) (191,10€)

22 A second example: Die erste Adresse in Deutschland für Ozean-, Erd- und Klimaforschung ist Kiel – das gilt auch für Studenten. Die Kieler Christian-Albrechts-Universität hat als eine der ersten Hochschulen auf diesem Gebiet ein Paket neuer, aufeinander aufbauender Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge geschnürt, das jetzt offiziell von der Akkreditierungsagentur ASIIN zugelassen wurde. Im Oktober beginnen die ersten Studierenden mit ihrem Studium, das eng mit dem Leibniz-Institut für Meereswissenschaften IFM-GEOMAR verbunden ist. Das neue Programm besteht aus einem gemeinsamen dreijährigen Bachelorstudium: Physik des Erdsystems: Meteorologie – Ozeanographie – Geophysik. Das deckt eine breite Grundausbildung ab – von Angewandter Mathematik bis zur Methodik der Physik, die in den drei Spezialisierungen vertieft werden kann.
