Learning in the field and lab, focusing on local and global biological issues, you’ll develop the skills needed to move into a rewarding animal biology career. You will explore the form and function of animals, their adaptions to the environment, interaction, physiology and evolution. You’ll examine animal behaviour from ants to primates and learn how to conduct surveys for a variety of animal populations.
You’ll have the opportunity to progress from field training in the UK to field research overseas, studying animal behaviour and conservation in South Africa or the ecology of alpine settings in Switzerland. In your second year you’ll also have the option to take our internship module, which not only provides critical workplace experience but also awards academic credit towards your degree.
Throughout, you’ll be guided by lecturers awarded for their teaching excellence and media work, and internationally-recognised for their frontline research in bioscience. These include Professor Adam Hart who has presented BBC2’s Hive Alive, BBC4’s Planet Ant: Life Inside the Colony and BBC Radio 4’s Big Game Theory.
