The renowned Oceans Research Internship offers a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ opportunity for students to gain hands on practical training in conducting research on South Africa’s marine mega-fauna, including the great white shark. Interns join our scientists daily on their research expeditions to conduct ground breaking research and experiments involving Mossel Bay’s sharks and marine mammals. Become part of a team that is currently conducting unprecedented research on the ocean’s predators.

Students looking for potential honours, dissertation, or masters projects can also submit possible project proposals for consideration. Oceans hosts a number of students looking for field work and data sets for these types of projects. Contact for more information.
