Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

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.
