Course summary

Environmental conservation is now top of government agendas around the world which means that we now require a new generation of trained professional scientists with a sound zoological knowledge and an appreciation of the issues involved in local and global conservation.This MZool is an extended undergraduate programme which allows students to graduate either with BSc (Hons) at the end of the third year or with a Master at the end of the fourth year. If at the end of Year 2 a sufficient standard has been achieved, then progression onto the Masters year will be permitted following completion of Year 3. The fourth year offers a unique opportunity to conduct an extended research project either in the laboratory or in the field.We will teach you all about traditional zoology, including taxonomy, morphology, physiology and cell biology with an emphasis upon animal ecology (biodiversity, ecology, behaviour and evolution). You will also take modules that will give you an understanding of the need for environmental conservation and how conservation objectives can be achieved. This degree establishes links between the academic learning environment and external environmental and conservation organisations in the form of project work and practical management plans.You will acquire a broad theoretical understanding of zoology and conservation and you will also gain the associated practical skills. Along with a comprehensive range of transferable skills, this degree will equip you for a career in conservation.We have always been one of the main UK universities for ecology and, because we are located next to Snowdonia National Park which is the perfect setting for this degree course. You will benefit from being close to an exceptional range of terrestrial, marine and freshwater habitats where field work. Field courses are an integral part of this degree.Bangor is also the home of the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW), and Natural Resources Wales as well as the divisional offices of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH), and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), all of which have close links to the University and staff associated with this course. These links feed directly into our teaching.‘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.
