Course summary

Zoologists are scientists who study animals, from the largest mammals to the smallest insects. Understanding them and their communities gives an insight into both human and animal life and how they can be sustained in the face of global challenges, from climate change to food security.Here at Harper Adams, you’ll study whole organisms, not just species at the molecular level. You’ll look at animals’ physiology, behaviour, and how they interact with other species and their environments, in order to preserve important habitats and manage wildlife in light of climate change.Zoologists help protect endangered species and wildlife from the dangers of habitat loss, disease, invasive species, and climate change, and to protect and learn more about human life in the process.You’ll study a wide range of species from farm livestock to companion animals and exotics, to UK wildlife such as insects, with a strong emphasis on field and laboratory work – both skills in demand by employers.Your lecturers are animal scientists, entomologists, conservationists, environmental specialists, veterinarians and many more highly experienced staff.Students who undertake the BSc degree (also referred to as an Ordinary degree) will typically complete their award in four years (including an industrial placement year), with successful completion of the award graded as either a pass (with commendation) or pass. The main difference between this and a BSc (Hons) degree, is the reduced volume of study and assessment required by the BSc degree. The BSc degree and the BSc (Hons) degree share a common first year, which provides an opportunity for transfer between the two degree types subject to academic performance.4 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A three year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option.
