Study With Us

As a MaREI PhD or Masters student, you will be based in one of our partner institutions around the country. You will be a registered student in that institution as well as being a valuable part of the larger MaREI research community.

As a student, you will have access to 200 researchers distributed across a range of multi-disciplinary research teams, allowing you to combine insights across areas such as Marine Renewable Energy Technologies, Materials & Structures, Observation & Operations, Coastal & Marine Systems, Bioenergy, Energy Policy & Modelling, and Renewable Energy Management. As a driver of collaboration, the Centre actively engages across more than 36 countries, consistently publishing in high-impact journals and participating in major EU and international initiatives.

Whilst carrying out your research at MaREI we hope that you and your research will benefit from the frequent interactions with scientists and engineers from other disciplines and that these interactions may present new opportunities and avenues for your research.

Our available postgraduate positions can be accessed here (link to the career opportunities page) and will also be listed on

There are 4 postgraduate start dates throughout the year – October, January, April, and July. You should, therefore, apply at least 3-6 months prior to the commencement date to allow for your application to be processed, and to allow for the processing of visas if you are a Non-EU or International Student.
