Our BSc Zoology with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while learning about the behaviour, structure and evolution of animals. Zoologists use a wide range of approaches to do this, 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 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. We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement. 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.
