Course summary

This is a 4-year course designed specifically for students who want to gain a really in-depth understanding of the subject. During the first three years, you will follow an same degree course structure as for Marine Biology and Zoology BSc. At the end of Year two, providing a satisfactory mark has been obtained, you continue with Year three of the BSc course and proceed to a 4th year specialised course. In the fourth year you will carry out a substantial piece of research which forms your final year dissertation. You will be able to work in a staff member’s research group and will gain valuable research experience of working in a research environment.The Marine Biology element of this course covers animals, seaweeds, plants and microbial life in the seas and their interactions. The Zoology element covers all animals whether on land or in water. This degree therefore gives a wide overview of the diversity of animal life and ecosystems on this planet, ranging from the mountains to the deep sea trenches. On this course you will learn how interactions between animals and their environments apply equally to marine, terrestrial and freshwater habitats. You will be introduced to the fundamentals of biology, ecology, and evolution of marine organisms and all animal groups. We also cover more applied aspects such as aquaculture and fisheries, parasitology and immunology. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Marine Biology (with Foundation Year) C16F.
