Studying zoology provides you with specialist knowledge in areas such as ethology (the science of animal behaviour), animal biology (particularly physiology, molecular biology and genetics), conservation and ecology.
In addition to this subject-specific knowledge, you will also develop practical experience of modern laboratory and field research techniques, giving you a range of technical skills.
Studying for a degree in zoology also provides you with a strong set of transferable skills valued by many employers. These include:
Some three-year degree courses include the opportunity to opt for a four-year sandwich degree. The third year is spent undertaking a work placement, either in the UK or abroad, which provides valuable practical experience and enables you to further develop your transferable skills.
