Clifton campus

Modern zoology is interdisciplinary and this course will enable you to learn the depth and breadth of animal biology, from the molecular to the ecological. Our zoology degree begins broadly and introduces more choice in years two and three.

You will have the freedom to tailor your course to your interests and to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies. Opportunities include a week-long field- or laboratory-based course selected from a range of subject areas, and a practical research project. The range of research and transferable skills you will learn will enhance your employability as a graduate.

We have outstanding facilities in our state-of-the-art Life Sciences Building and the School of Biological Sciences has a world-class reputation for animal behaviour research. Many of our lecturers are world-leading researchers in animal behaviour and sensory biology and lead internationally-recognised field studies on wild animal populations.
