Course summary

As a zoology student at the University of Leeds, you will become an expert in all things animal, with a broad foundational knowledge and specialised and applied expertise. You will study everything from animal behaviour, learning how animals interact with their environment and each other, to how evolution shapes how animals persist in various ecosystems. In addition, you will learn how animals interact with global change, and by what method we recover and conserve the precious wildlife with which we cohabit this planet. With the modern world encountering a series of global challenges such as climate change, food security, invasive species and biodiversity conservation, knowledge and practical skills in this field are highly sought-after.Not only will you develop knowledge in the area of zoology, but you’ll also strengthen your practical lab and experimental design skills, further enhancing them on our series of field courses. This specialist course will culminate with you completing your own full independent research project in your final year.Our optional integrated Masters (MBiol) also offers you an additional year of specialist training, to study advanced research topics and undertake an extended project. You’ll study Masters-level topics, carry out extended research and have the chance to study savannah ecology and conservation in Kenya.**Course highlights**- Zoology achieved 91% student satisfaction (NSS 2020).- Field course options including marine zoology in Pembrokeshire, Mediterranean ecology in Spain and African ecology in South Africa.- Conduct a research project or mini-research project during every year of your degree.- Extensive practical work with modules such as detecting invasive species where we use cutting-edge molecular techniques to identify cryptic species and ask fundamental questions in evolution and conservation.- Taught by world-class researchers in Social Insect Biology, Freshwater Ecology, Conservation Science, Marine Ecology and Animal Evolution.- Research-led advanced topic modules in your final year cover topics as diverse as human genetics, conservation science, evolution and animal behaviour.
