This four year degree integrates a three-year Zoology degree with a final year of training in Masters-level scientific skills. You will study the evolution, anatomy, physiology, behavior and ecology of animals, along with how to care for and conserve them. You’ll gain an understanding of modern biology in all its forms from conservation management to paleoanthropology to molecular biology. Throughout your time at Roehampton, you’ll be supported by a welcoming and diverse community of staff and students in high-quality facilities on a beautiful parkland campus. You'll have access to our excellent facilities and modern laboratories, along with the opportunity to conduct field work both locally and oveseas. We offer innovative modules such as ‘Biodiversity’ where you will learn about the key aspects of evolution in animals, ‘Comparative Biology’ where you will gain as strong foundation in the evolutionary history, physiology, and behavior of vertebrates, and ‘Conservation, People and Wildlife: South African Field Course’ where you’ll learn directly from people living and working in conservation and related fields in South Africa, and study its wildlife first-hand. In the fourth year you will undertake modules in advanced analysis and hot topics in biology, working in small groups where you will be tutored by world experts both from Roehampton and other universities.
