Zoology BSc Honours
UCAS Code: C300 (3 Years)


Red squirrel Zoology is the scientific study of all forms of animal life, including how they behave, reproduce, evolve, and interact with other species and their environment.

In the first year all our students study the same fundamental topics in biology, such as plant biology, microbiology and ecology.

In later Stages, you will study specialist zoology topics such as:

  • animal behaviour and physiology
  • biodiversity and conservation
  • vertebrate biology
  • entomology

You will enjoy a bird and insect identification fieldcourse, as well as a week-long residential course on ecology or animal behaviour.

Through lab-based teaching you learn key laboratory skills required by professional biologists.

You'll also enjoy optional modules informed by research being conducted at the University, such as animal behaviour and current zoology.
