Our guide to undergraduate zoology courses

Zoology courses cover broad study options including aquatic zoology, animal behaviour, biological sciences, and marine zoology. Typically, zoology programmes are designed as an applied scientific analysis of the animal kingdom, where studies range from the biology of animal groups to the transferral of characteristics across generations. Zoologist graduates may work in a number of careers, from applied fieldwork based right across the globe, to more in-depth research that leads to medicine development and procurement.
