About the courseImmerse yourself in the lives and behaviour of animals on our Royal Society of Biology-recognised degree. You’ll study in a world-renowned centre of wildlife conservation, and get practical skills in our laboratories that you can apply on a range of field trips in the UK and abroad. Zoology is closely connected to subjects such as cell biology and genetics. You could choose to specialise in areas such as animal behaviour, wildlife biology or ecology and conservation. Field work is an important part of zoology. It’s a practical subject and we’ll give you plenty of opportunities to learn and practise both in the lab and the field. In your second year you’ll take a week-long field trip to north Devon to experience both marine and terrestrial zoology, the costs of which are included in your course fees. On our optional field trips you might experience rutting red deer on the island of Rum, marine biology in Scotland, world-class zoos in the Netherlands, wildlife and ecology in Africa, and diving and marine biology overseas. You’ll need to pay for these optional trips.Full-time undergraduate (3 years, 4 years with foundation year, 4 years with placement)
