University Of Bristol Zoology

In considering a Zoology degree, you already know that your main interest is animal biology, but maybe you don’t yet know exactly which area of the subject you would like to pursue. Because modern zoology is interdisciplinary we believe that you need to be aware of the breadth of animal biology, from the molecular to the ecological. Our Zoology degree therefore begins broadly and then introduces more choice in years two and three. This freedom to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies, and the range of skills you will learn (both research-oriented and transferable) will also maximise your employability as a graduate.
