Whether you’re interested in trips to remote and exotic locations, or late nights in laboratories trying to master evolution and extinction, get a jump-start with our introductory Zoology course.
Despite the name, our Zoology course will do more than just qualify you to work in a zoo. The science, research, data, analysis, and behavioural skills you’ll learn can make you attractive to a wide variety of organisations including charities, government agencies, universities, and research centres.
Kickstart your learning with our Zoology course. The variety of life on earth is enormous, consisting of a diverse range of different species. Zoology is the scientific study of animal life, from the very smallest animal to the very largest animal. Zoologists study many different aspects of animal life ranging from animal behaviour and ecology to the evolution of animals.
The Level 3 Zoology qualification will cover a broad range of topics to equip students with the knowledge to kick-start a career in the field of zoology. Students completing the Level 3 Zoology course may go on to further study or may work in conservation organisations, zoos, aquariums, wildlife parks, conservation organisations or animal and environmental charities. This course pairs very well with other courses in our Animal Care category.
