This MBio Zoology degree at University of Lincoln  aims to provide a broad understanding of the subject, encompassing the study of key aspects of modern zoology in a diverse range of invertebrates and vertebrates. Students have opportunities to study animals in their natural habitat at key points during their studies. As students study, they will have the chance to develop skills in scientific methods and communication.

Students can participate in two residential field trips in the UK, enabling them to study animals in the wild. These trips are part of two core modules: ‘Ecology’ in the first year and ‘Conservation Biology’ in the second year. For UK based field trips the University will cover costs of transport, accommodation and meals at the field site. There is also an optional Overseas Field Course module in the third year. Further details, including costs, can be found in the Features section.

The MBio programme includes an additional research-intensive year, with modules to develop key transferable skills relevant to further research and employment opportunities.
