BSc Zoology with a Modern Language / Careers

Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

Graduates from modern language courses are extremely desirable to employers who require significant relevant work experience. In the growing field of international bioscience research collaborations, graduates with a good command of a foreign language are at a distinct advantage.

Many of our graduates secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies, and institutes.

The transferable skills you will develop will also leave you well equipped for a wide range of careers outside the lab.

Many zoology students go on to work in conservation projects around the world. A number of graduates are now involved in such programmes in the UK and South Africa.

Other popular career choices include working in zoos and museums.

Accrediting organisations

This course has Advanced Accreditation  from the Royal Society of Biology.

Advanced Accreditation recognises academic excellence in the biosciences, highlighting degrees that contain a significant research element and educate the future leaders of research and development.

The criteria require evidence that graduates meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including gaining substantial research experience.

In recognition of this, a graduate of an advanced accredited course can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Member (MRSB) level after just two years of practice, rather than the usual three.

These graduates can attain the qualifications of Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist one year sooner than graduates from other courses.
