Overview

The Zoology programme at the University of Roehampton covers the evolution, anatomy, physiology, behaviour and ecology of animals, along with how to care for and conserve them. You will gain an expert understanding of modern zoology in all its forms, from conservation management to paleoanthroplogy to molecular biology.  With a strong emphasis on practical work, you will have plenty of opportunities to work in the field, both locally and overseas, to gain valuable skills for your career. 

The degree is taught by leading biologists, biomedical scientists and anthropologists who have links to the Wetlands Centre in Barnes, international wildlife trusts and citizen science projects such as the Riverfly Partnership.  

How you will learn 

You will be based at Whitelands College, with beautiful views overlooking nearby deer-filled Richmond Park, where you will conduct field study, and learn about animal behaviour and river restoration. 

You will learn core laboratory skills such as titration, pipetting, and how to design and carry out laboratory experiments such as addressing climate change or identifying biological or physiological traits of animals. 

You will survey the environment, take measurements, collect samples, perform biochemical analysis in practical laboratory work, and interpret your data by creating reports and giving presentations on the results of your findings.
