International MSc: Aquaculture Health Management
An exciting opportunity to study for a new international MSc in Aquaculture Health Management has been announced as part of the ERASMUS Mundus programme, allowing successful applicants to stay and study at 4 of Europe’s leading institutes in aquaculture: Ghent University (Belgium), Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet (NTNU, Norway), Wageningen University (The Netherlands) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona &Universitat de Barcelona (Spain). Applicants will also be able to undertake a work placement and thesis research at one of the many industry and research partners with which these institutions engage.
Noting that the aquaculture sector is steadily reaching maturity but its further growth is increasingly facing serious problems with parasites, viral, bacterial or stress-related disease outbreaks, the AquaH programme responds to the need for an expert training that prepares students to develop and implement innovative solutions to aquaculture health issues thus contributing to the sustainable development of the aquaculture industry.
