Zoology

It was the Greek philosopher Aristotle who first decided to turn to the wildlife around him and document the behaviour and characteristics of hundreds of species in nine books to form what later became known as the History of Animals. In an impressive 130,000 words Aristotle moulded the very framework of modern Zoology.

Zoology, later glamorized by Charles Darwin, is the science of the animal kingdom. Otherwise known as animal science, Zoology deals with the fine details of the animal classification system. Whilst studying Zoology you can be expected to learns about animal physiology, embryology, evolution and classification of both living and extinct species. Beyond this you can expect to learn how animals interact with their ecosystems and even understand animal behaviour.

To pursue a degree in Zoology you must have an aptitude for biology inclusive of genetic and cellular science. Typical entry requirements rest between ABB-AAA, with the A-Levels required being Biology and Chemistry, although it may be useful to have Psychology or Maths at least to AS Level.

Famous Zoologists include the likes of Jane Goodall, the world’s foremost expert on chimpanzees, and David Attenborough the famous BBC presenter and the UK’s very own national treasure. Other who study Zoology can see themselves travelling to exotic locations across the world to be an animal behaviour researcher or wildlife conservationist. Field research contrasts greatly to the type of graduate lab-based research of many graduates which can be held a little closer to home. Many will go on to study a Masters degree in Zoology and a further PhD. Besides a career in research Zoology opens many doors in the world of science, conservation, management, finance and finally marketing.

Often breakthroughs in human health are made thanks to those advances made on their animal counterparts. Dogs and other animals can be used in clinical trials for cancer drugs and as subjects for studying ageing. The organisation One Health recognises that the health of people is intimately connected to the health of animals and our environment. They specifically encourage the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines inclusive of medics and vets.

Currently Veterinary Science is making huge leaps forward for the world of human medicine. To become a part of this fast-paced and of-the-moment research you may be interested in pursuing Veterinary Science as a degree. This particular branch of medicine deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease in both domesticated and wild animals. In the United Kingdom there are currently eight institutions where veterinary medicine can be studied:

  • The University of Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Nottingham, Surrey and the Royal Veterinary College as a part of the University of London.

Following your degree you will either be awarded a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (3 year degree) and the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery (5 year degree) – this is required to practise as a Vet.

The application to study Veterinary Science is demanding, requiring a minimum of three As at A-level, inclusive of at least Biology and Chemistry. If you are worried you can’t achieve your entry requirements then head over to our Science Tutors Page to find a tutor just right for you.

Once you have achieved a place at Veterinary School with our help you can expect in your first two years to learn about both domestic animals and livestock. Students will then have the ability to further specialise in subjects of research such as reproductive medicine. As your time in your degree progresses you will have more opportunities to practice your skills and go on to professional placements. These placements can give you an exciting introduction to the world of Vet Science – many can even be abroad in tropical climates. Here you will experience once in a lifetime surgeries and help wild and often endangered animals.

If you’d like arrange private lessons or have any questions about our tuition services please call us on Tel: +44 (0) 207 665 6606 or you can send us an email via our contact form.
