Course summary

This degree is an extended undergraduate programme which allows you to graduate either with BSc (Hons) at the end of the third year or with an undergraduate Masters (MZool) at the end of the fourth year. The fourth year of this course offers a unique opportunity to conduct an extended research project either in the laboratory or in the field.Our Zoology degree is literally ‘all about animals’. On this degree you will receive a thorough grounding in 21st century zoology, exploring the diversity of animal form and function, and the evolution and ecology of the major animal groups. Through a series of individual modules which offer an element of choice, you will gain sound and broad zoological training in both invertebrate and vertebrate zoology, including applied aspects such as behaviour, entomology, parasitology, developmental biology, evolutionary biology, and the interaction between animals and their environment. We offer opportunities to carry out fieldwork both home and abroad, and to volunteer in research laboratories and animal facilities. Throughout your time at Bangor you will gain important subject-specific and transferable skills in experimental design, practical work, data analysis, group work, oral presentation, writing, and IT.You will not only enjoy the resources expected of a modern centre of animal biology but will also benefit from the proximity of an exceptional range of terrestrial, marine, and freshwater habitats where field work, which is an integral part of the degree is conducted. We have our own Natural History Museum and are part of the Environment Centre Wales which is a partnership venture between Bangor University and the Natural Environment Research Council’s Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH). We have onsite marine and freshwater aquaria, and facilities for maintenance of venomous and non-venomous reptiles, small mammals, and birds, as well as large modern teaching and research laboratories and lecture halls, computer rooms, and study spaces.As part of the Zoology degree you may choose to spend 3-6 months in Year 2 at a University in either Europe or the United States on a student exchange programme.‘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 Zoology (with Foundation Year) C30F.
