University of Exeter
The BSc (Hons) Intercalated Zoology focuses on an understanding of the biology of animals, with an emphasis on whole-animal biology, biodiversity, ecology and behaviour, along with the evolution of the whole spectrum of animal life histories. It is delivered by internationally recognised, research-active staff in the Centre for Ecology and Conservation on the Penryn Campus. The Centre hosts a large and thriving group of scientists who work at the cutting edge of research on whole-organism biology and run research projects across the globe, from Uganda to Australia. The programme utilises expertise in the Centre to provide you with the skills, concepts and experience to understand all aspects of modern zoology. The programme encourages an interdisciplinary approach and you will be exposed to a wide range of theoretical and practical techniques used to study the biology of animals of all types.
