This course will give you a sound knowledge and understanding of animal biology and the ability to apply this to the rapidly expanding animal industry.
Lectures cover the major scientific principles of: You will focus on the biology of exotic animals, namely non-domestic and non-UK wildlife and apply this to all aspects of management and species conservation of both captive and non-captive populations.
In the talk, we learned all about the function of the zoo and its role in conservation as well as the four different aspects that the zoo takes part in: education, scientific research, breeding and reintroduction programs and legislation.
All of these functions aim to preserve threatened species so that they can be reintroduced once the dangers they face in the wild have been eradicated, as well as promoting animal welfare and encouraging a greater awareness of what prevents species becoming threatened.
Being a student in London is like studying at the centre of the world, partly because of the amazing nightlife!
More importantly, it’s the best place in the UK when it comes to academic study, as there are so many resources at hand.
We place a strong emphasis on fieldwork, with compulsory and optional modules taking students to locations across the UK and internationally, including: Go global and study abroad as part of your degree – apply for our Zoology BSc with a Year Abroad.
For optional fieldwork, you will have to contribute up to £150, plus the cost of your flight (based on costs for 2017/18). Queen Mary is a great place to really find yourself.
Compulsory fieldwork will not cost you anything extra.
For optional fieldwork, you will have to contribute up to £150, plus the cost of your flight (based on costs for 2017/18). Having a biology degree from a Russell Group university will help my application stand out to future employers.
