Throughout the 16 weeks study program, students will be appointed for several field trips, visiting some of Bali's best conservation places; such as Bedugul Botanical Gardens, Butterfly Park, Coral Garden, Turtle Conservation Center, Mangrove forest and more. Biology & Marine Science professors as well as guest lecturers will also pass on their expert knowledge to the students on the regular theoretical lectures session at Udayana University during the study program.
Since Bali is an island surrounded by a vast amount of Ocean, it is a definite place to learn about Tropical Marine Biology as well. It only takes you a few minutes to reach nearby beaches, where you can spend a day chilling, relaxing, and at the same time researching shoreline ecosystems in your free-time! You can experience everything you heard from movies and documentation in real life, as well as taking the utmost part in the island's nature conservation and preservation effort.
