What is Joint Honours?

A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.


This course focuses on animal biology, such as vertebrate and invertebrate biology, molecular biology, genetics and pgysiology. You'll also cover topics, such as wildlife conservation, ecology and animal behaviour, to give you a broad knowledge of zoology.
