QMUL has a strong record of research achievement in understanding the structure, physiology, ecology and behaviour of animals – from microscopic creatures to turtles and bats. Our programme will give you an overview of modern zoological thinking, including a strong emphasis on the underlying concepts that shape our understanding of animal diversity. As a zoology student, you will get a thorough grounding in vertebrate and invertebrate biology, including physiology, behaviour, evolution and ecology. Modules in molecular and population genetics, ecology, statistics and immunology are also available. We place a strong emphasis on fieldwork, with compulsory and option modules taking students to locations across the UK and internationally, including: Studying tropical ecology in Kruger Park, South Africa Hunting dinosaur fossils in Canada Studying predator-prey interactions in Somerset.
