About MSci Zoology

Our MSci Zoology degree is recommended for students with ambitions to continue in zoological research and who want the extra experience and a competitive edge in applying for PhDs or research jobs.

The first three years are the same as the BSc course, beginning broadly before introducing more choice to pursue your interests from year two onwards. The fourth year offers advanced skills training and a substantial research project, especially valuable for those who want to pursue a career in zoology.

We have outstanding facilities in our state-­of-­the-­art Life Sciences Building, and our lecturers are top researchers in their fields.
