Course summary

INTRODUCTION

This course will provide you with a strong foundation in biology and environmental issues, allowing you to progress onto a BSc (Hons) Zoology degree course at the University of Salford.

It is ideal if you want to develop your career along a zoological pathway but have a non-scientific background, or if you don’t meet the entry requirements for direct entry to an honours degree. This course may also be attractive if you are returning to education or if you wish to change career direction.

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.

COURSE DETAILS

Our BSc in Zoology will develop your knowledge of concepts at the forefront of zoological science. Practical training will equip you with many of the subject specific, personal and practical skills that you will need for your future career. You will learn about biological processes, their behaviour and how they react with their environment.

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.

EMPLOYMENT AND STATS

Zoology graduates can enter a wide range of vocations in biological or life sciences. These include careers related to zoological sciences training such as science communication and publishing, science administration, zoo work, wildlife conservation and management. Other graduates may go on to work in the pharmaceutical industries, agrochemicals or medical technology as well as research institutes, government agencies and as animal physiologists.
