Stirling is the perfect place to study animal biology. Take your degree at Scotland’s academic hub for animal conservation.
What determines an animal’s resistance to disease? Why do many female animals exhibit ‘mate choice’? How can we help animals cope in hostile environments? On this course you’ll you study the enormous variety of animal life on earth and discover the answers to these and many other searching questions.
We explore related aspects of animal biology, including animal behaviour, ecology, evolution, cell biology and physiology, as well as applied aspects of animal conservation and management.
Fieldwork will be an essential part of your training. In addition to fieldwork in Scotland, we run two optional fieldtrips in Year 4. One course is situated in southern Europe (for example, in the French Cévennes Mountains, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, and the second course is based at Gabon’s Lopé National Park, in the heart of the western Congo Basin.
As Scotland’s hub for conservation science, with close links to many animal conservation organisations, Stirling the ideal place to study biology.
