Each year BIOS hosts students from the University of Southampton for a tropical marine biology field course as part of their undergraduate course in marine biology. During this course, students learn about the ecology of Bermuda's marine plants and animals, as well as the field work tools and techniques used by marine scientists. Over the years, BIOS's scientific staff have mentored many University of Southampton interns and students, some of whom return to BIOS after they graduate to pursue scientific research careers.
