Course summary

**In a rapidly changing environment, animals and their ecosystems are in danger and skilled professionals are needed to help protect them. Our BSc (Hons) Zoology will develop your knowledge of concepts at the forefront of zoological science and provide you with the practical skills to help make a difference.** This course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the biology of animals: you will learn about animals, the links between them and their environment, and key aspects of zoological phenomena from molecular to ecological levels. You will also learn about biological processes, their behaviour and how they react with their environment. Practical training will equip you with many of the subject specific, personal and practical skills needed for your future career.You will have the opportunity to go on several field trips over the duration of this programme which will provide real world experiences and examples to learn from. You will only pay a modest non-refundable administration fee for the residential field courses, which are otherwise 100% subsidised by the university.Between years two and three of this course we encourage students to complete a placement year, which is arranged with our support. The position is often salaried, with a major company linked to a public health laboratory or wildlife trust, or a research organisation such as the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, MAFF or Central Veterinary Laboratory. In our experience, final degree results and employability are enhanced for students who undertake a placement year. The placement also counts towards the final degree classification as part of the year 2 mark.Features• Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology • A wide variety of field trips are available in the UK and abroad, including an opportunity for some students to go to Brazil• Apply your knowledge in the field through an optional placement year • You will be taught by many academics who are active Zoology researchers
