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 skillset, and cover both local and global conservation issues whilst encouraging both a theoretical and applied approach to the subject. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. The Foundation Year may also be of interest to mature students who have been out of formal education for an extended period of time or who wish to change their academic field of study.
For the latest example of curriculum availability on this degree programme please refer to the University of Chester's Website.
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.
