University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
If you are considering a zoology degree, you already know that your main interest is animal biology, but maybe you don't yet know which area of the subject you would like to pursue. Modern zoology is interdisciplinary, so we believe that you need to be aware of the breadth of animal biology from the molecular to the ecological. Our zoology degree begins broadly, then introduces more choice in years two and three. The freedom to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies and 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 our lecturers are top researchers in their fields.
