Learning in the field and lab, focusing on local and global zoology, you’ll explore the form and function of animals, their adaptions to the environment, interaction, physiology and evolution. You’ll examine animal behaviour from ants to primates and learn how to conduct surveys for a variety of animal populations.
Our biology courses are ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction, and 11th in the UK for career prospects by the Guardian University Guide 2023.
The flexibility of our course means that after Year 1 you can maintain a broad interest in Zoology or specialise. You can also choose to switch degree entirely to our BSc Biology or BSc Wildlife Conservation Biology courses if you wish.
You’ll have the opportunity to progress from field training in the UK in Year 1 to field research overseas in Year 2 and field placements in Year 3, spanning the savannah of South Africa, the tropical rainforests of Borneo or mountains of Switzerland.
With a focus on small class, practical and field learning, you will be assessed entirely through coursework to gain a truly representative measure of graduate attributes sought by future employers and for postgraduate study.
Throughout, you’ll be guided by lecturers awarded for their teaching excellence and media work, and internationally-recognised for their frontline conservation research in bioscience.
