Our BSc Zoology with Industrial/Professional Experience course will enable you to gain experience of the workplace on a year-long placement during your degree, making you more attractive to potential employers after graduation. You will understand the behaviour, structure and evolution of animals, studying a wide range of subjects from genetics to molecular and cellular biology, as well as physiological processes and anatomy, whole animals, populations, and their ecology. 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 final years. 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. In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to go on a placement with one of our more than 100 partner organisations in the UK or abroad. Placements range from research project work to roles in education, the biotechnology industry and science communication. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
