Zoology involves the study of biodiversity, ecology and human society in order to protect and manage species, habitats and ecosystems. The course aims to provide you with a wide skill set, and covers both local and global conservation issues while encouraging both a theoretical and applied approach to the subject. This course offers great opportunities for those interested in nature conservation, in understanding how ecosystems function or in becoming part of a global scientific community. Our staff have both national and international experience, and use this when delivering teaching. Within our Department, we currently have specialist expertise in a number of growing areas of conservation science, and may combine conservation knowledge with other areas to improve conservation research and teaching.

We are keen to use a variety of assessment methods, and your learning will be assessed by a combination of coursework (including essays, reports and presentations) practical reports and examinations. The examinations vary but may take the form of multiple-choice papers, essays, data handling questions and practical assessments.
