Our MSci Zoology course will enable you to achieve an integrated master's degree while you study for a BSc, giving you significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research. Zoologists use a wide range of approaches to understand the behaviour, structure and evolution of animals, from genetics to molecular and cellular biology, as well as physiological processes and anatomy, whole animals, populations, and their ecology. As such, you will study fundamental concepts from a range of disciplines in your first year before going on to study more specialised zoology topics in your second and third years. In Year 4, you will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve your undergraduate master's award. Field studies form an important part of our teaching and you will attend two field courses - one in the first year and one in the second year - including the possibility of visiting South Africa.
