Why do animals behave the way they do? Find out on our Cambridge-based Animal Behaviour course, recognised by the Society of Biology. Take a work placement that will open up wide-ranging careers in wildlife settings, zoo education and beyond. Gain the skills you’ll need to investigate animals in their natural habitats and learn about important discoveries that contribute to conservation efforts.
Gain an understanding of the application of animal behaviour to conservation, and develop the practical skills you need for a career in animal conservation. You'll train in the technologies and scientific methods used in animal behaviour research and how these can be applied to solve modern conservation problems.
Learn how and why animals behave the way they do and gain the skills you will need to contribute to important discoveries. Our four-year course includes a foundation year when you will build up your scientific skills, before moving onto our BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour.
Develop your skills in major areas of biomedical science, including molecular cell biology, biomedical genetics and specialised topics in medical diagnostics. You'll focus on rapidly-evolving research into the applications of bioscience in healthcare whilst working in our impressive Cambridge Science Centre laboratories.
Develop the practical skills you need for a career in wildlife conservation. The course was developed in partnership with environmental organisations to ensure you’re skilled and employable in this rewarding area. It allows development of skills including the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software, research skills and communication skills, with an optional laboratory-based module on conservation genetics.
As a postgraduate researcher you will join an interdisciplinary group which is well-connected with industry and fellow research institutions worldwide. PhD candidates are encouraged to take an active role in the department's research community in areas currently spanning global change ecology, conservation and animal behaviour and welfare.
Biomedical science explores our understanding of health, disease and ageing in human, animal and microbial systems. PhD candidates are encouraged to take an active role in the department's research community in areas of cancer cell biology, cardiovascular disease, microbiology and molecular biology.
Develop your scientific skills and explore new specialisms. If you’re a working biomedical scientist take a step towards being a Chartered Scientist status by studying on our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited distance-learning course.
Our Biomedical Science degree will give you an intellectually stimulating education in the fast-moving field of the science that underpins modern medicine. This course, which is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), gives you a thorough grounding in the theory and practice used by Biomedical Scientists to diagnose and treat diseases, but also prepares you for a career in a wide range of biomedical fields. On this course you will learn about the human body at the molecular, cellular, organ and systems levels in health and disease.
