Teaching from our expert staff, combined with the extensive practical experience you can gain from a broad variety of field trips, will ensure you can be fully equipped to realise a successful job in a broad variety of careers from veterinary medicine and conservation, to animal or farm management. We enjoy a close link with nearby conservation charity and zoo – Marwell Wildlife – which will add a different perspective to your learning. In year three, you will undertake a laboratory-based or field research project, with fieldwork undertaken in the UK or abroad. To obtain an in-depth understanding of animals, you will start with a general study of the biosciences, from cell biology and the study of insects, to whole organisms and species, communities and ecosystems. In your third year you will be able to choose a laboratory based or field project, with fieldwork undertaken in the UK or abroad. Our lecturers are world experts in their areas, researching subjects such as invasive or endangered species, embryonic development in mammals and ageing in social insects. This can lead to advances in medicine to prevent disease amongst both animals and humans.
