With increasing concern about protecting natural habits, there is much to learn about the biology and behaviour of animals. Pursue your passion for the animal kingdom with our BSc (Hons) Zoology with Foundation Year degree. Taking you from the laboratory to the field, our highly-focused degree will develop your knowledge of concepts at the forefront of zoological science, biological processes, animal behaviour and ecosystem interaction. Build in-demand scientific knowledge and skills This foundation year pathway is recommended if you want to study the full honours degree, but don’t meet the direct entry requirements. On successful completion of the foundation year, you will be ready to progress to study our full BSc Zoology honours degree, which is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology. Continuing your studies for three further years of study - or four, if you choose to include an industry placement, you will build your knowledge of key biological processes, biodiversity and ecosystems, while developing practical skills in our Bodmer laboratories and through field work. In your final year, you will choose specialist modules that suit your areas of interest and complete a research project based on a subject topic of your choice. Get closer to industry Focusing on real-world issues, we put fieldwork at the heart of your learning experience. In recent years, students have taken part in residential trips to Cumbria, Yorkshire, Shropshire and Gambia. We also regularly invite zoology professionals and practitioners to share their knowledge through guest lectures. Once on the BSc degree pathway you will also have the option to include an industry placement between years two and three. Previous zoology students have completed placements with public health laboratories, wildlife trust, or research organisations such as the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, MAFF and Central Veterinary Laboratory.
