Course summary

Our MSci Zoology course will enable you to achieve an integrated master's degree while you study for a BSc, giving you significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research.This course will help you to understand the behaviour, physiology, conservation, ecology and evolution of animals. Zoologists use a wide range of approaches to do this, from applying genetic techniques to observing animal behaviour to using quantitative statistics to answer cutting-edge questions about the natural world. As such, you will study fundamental concepts from a range of disciplines in your first year before going on to study more specialised zoology topics in your second and third years.In Year 4, you will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve your undergraduate master's award.Field studies form an important part of our teaching and you will attend two field courses- one in the first year and one in the second year - including the possibility of visiting South Africa. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
