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 with Marine Biology degree course at the University.

It is ideal if you want to develop your career along a zoological and marine biology pathway but have a non-scientific background, or 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.

The new BSc (Hons) Zoology with Marine Biology is the first of its kind in the north-west, managing to strike a fine balance between theoretical knowledge and practical skill learning. Thanks to the supportive learning environment, you will gain a systematic understanding of key aspects of biodiversity, and conservation, learning how these apply to the marine environment.

Practical training is particularly relevant and will be delivered during two residential field trips in coastal locations. The first one, in the second year of study, will be carried out in Scotland, at the renowned Millport Field Station. The second trip will be an overseas residential course that will take place in the 3rd year.

You will:

  • Increase your knowledge and understanding of basic biology and other aspects of environmental studies
  • Gain a broad, basic knowledge of biological principles and environmental studies to prepare you for more advanced study

COURSE DETAILS

During the foundation year you will study modules which will increase your knowledge and understanding of basic biology and other aspects of environmental studies. There is an emphasis on both understanding and problem solving in addition to practical and communication skills. These skills will aid and enhance your performance on the honours degree.

EMPLOYMENT AND STATS

Graduates from this course can enter a wide range of career paths. These include careers related to the wider sciences training such as science communication and publishing, science administration, to marine life conservation and management. Other graduates may go on to work in the environmental consultancy industry, marine biotechnology as well as research institutes and government agencies.
