Awards partner IMarEST offers free membership for students

Last month P1 Marine Foundation announced its partnership with The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) for the 2015 National Student Awards which supports research projects from UK students in higher education that will help to protect the marine and coastal environment.

The Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology (IMarEST) has demonstrated its commitment to the next generation of marine professionals by offering free student membership to all students (undergraduate and postgraduate), for the duration of their studies.

This offer is available to students on all courses in which marine activities have an influence, such as environmental sciences, geography and offshore renewables, as well as the traditional subjects associated with the marine sector.

Student membership includes access to a huge range of resources including the Virtual Library (an online collection of academic journals, magazines, reports, eBooks and proceedings) and the internationally recognised industry magazine, the Marine Professional. These resources supplement their studies or training and help to support students transitioning into the workplace through various internships and events. Student members also have access to financial support in the form of awards and scholarships.
