We teach the Marine Science A-level course and work closely with science interns from Malaysian universities on their degree projects. We have visiting scientists from across the globe conducting their research here and we also welcome media and creative interns.

Marine Science A-Level

TRACC teaches the full A-Level Marine Science course (Cambridge CIE exam 9693) once each year in 14 weeks from January until the exams in May. This is an internationally recognised certificate and is ideal for dive professionals, gap year students, pre-university students or anyone considering a career change.

In 2016, we had great results and our 8 students received only A*s, As and Bs.

There’s lots more information here.

Malaysian Science Interns

Local students hailing from different states of Malaysia come to TRACC as Science Interns. TRACC has had students from UM, UMT, UMS , UKM and UNIMAS who came to do their industrial training here. Science interns are expected to help out in science projects led by TRACC’s science officers whilst conducting their own research projects during their stay, which usually ranges from 2 to 3 months. Interns from local universities would be offered PADI diving courses up to Advanced Open Water level to equip them with the skills needed to carry out conservation projects.

TRACC volunteers and staff and students are mainly focused on practical conservation: protecting turtles, building reefs, working with communities. Research-based science is mainly done by visiting scientists and science interns. Some of our observation and survey studies collect data which is useful to others so we publish the information.

Media Interns

If you are passionate about ocean issues then we have intern positions for a wide range of backgrounds. Marine conservation is often about communication. Artists, photographers and media students can all become extraordinary advocates for ocean issues. We welcome media interns to run our social media platforms while they are here.
