From learning new ways to live smarter to being introduced to marine sciences and kick-starting your career in oceanography - these ocean-themed courses are sure to fulfil your hunger for knowledge.

"After completing the Young Biologist course, as well as the High School Volunteer Course, I felt more informed than ever. These courses were extremely enjoyable and allowed for maximum exposure to marine life- and ecosystems while at the Aquarium." - Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation Sea Turtle Clinic Coordinator, Razaan Keur 


Participants in all programmes have access to the Aquarium’s many exhibits and animals and its world-class facilities and equipment. The Two Oceans Aquarium Foundation also provides online and outreach programmes for those who can’t visit the Aquarium due to distance or affordability.
