Rhagarweiniad i’r Cwrs

Zoology is the branch of biology that deals with the study of animals in all their diversity. It covers a wide range of topics, including behaviour, ecology, evolution, anatomy, physiology, development and taxonomy.

The Master in Zoology (Primatology) is an extended undergraduate programme which allows students to graduate either with BSc (Hons) at the end of the third year or a Masters at the end of the fourth year. If at the end of the second year a sufficient standard has been achieved, then progression onto the Masters year will be permitted following completion of the third year.

The fourth year offers a unique opportunity to conduct an extended research project either in the laboratory or in the field.

Within the broad Zoology remit, this degree focuses specifically on the primates (apes, monkeys, tarsiers, lemurs and lorises). These species include our closest living and extinct relatives, and of course also our own species, Homo sapiens. On the Zoology with Primatology degree, our aim is to provide you with a sound and broad zoological training, with a special focus on this fascinating group of mammals.

Primatology is a dynamic discipline offering students the opportunity to bridge many fields, from the zoological strands mentioned above to cognitive science, anthropology, psychology and even archaeology. It combines classic field and experimental approaches with cutting-edge technology to solve some of the most fascinating theoretical conundrums in Zoology and provide solutions to the urgent conservation challenges facing one of the most threatened groups of mammals on the planet. It thus offers a richly stimulating ground for the training and learning of future zoologists, and an opportunity to get to grips with questions like ‘where do humans come from?’ and ‘how do we fit into the natural world around us?’

You will have the opportunity to acquire a broad range of laboratory and field skills, at home and abroad, and all the transferable skills associated with scientific training (including skills in data analysis, writing skills, presentation skills, IT skills and independent and group-working skills). You will have access to a spread of Zoology modules covering vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as a suite of specialist modules on primatology and human evolution.

We even have an optional Primatology Field Course which takes students to the “primate capital of the world”, Kibale National Park in Uganda.

Our excellent teaching facilities include a Zoology museum with a diverse collection of vertebrate and invertebrate specimens, including primates, a growing collection of non-human primate and early human fossil casts, marine and freshwater aquaria and a botanical garden close to the Menai Strait. We are also part of the Environment Centre Wales, which is a partnership between Bangor University and the Natural Environment Research Council’s Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.

Pam dewis Prifysgol Bangor ar gyfer y cwrs?

  • Bangor’s established Zoological and Primatological research programmes place cutting-edge science centre stage, and this feeds through to inform our teaching on this course.
  • Our expertise in the School encompasses studies on biogeography, evolution and behaviour, molecular ecology, population genetics and developmental biology, as well as primate behavioural ecology, primate (including human) evolutionary anatomy and ecology, and human evolution.
  • Budding primatologists will be part of a School with an established and growing primatology research group, through which they can engage with ongoing research activities and interact with specialist staff.
  • Our excellent teaching facilities give students access to modern laboratories, a Natural History Museum, a botanical garden and marine and freshwater aquaria.
  • Bangor’s location makes it an idea place to study zoology, as we have an extensive range of local habitats teeming with animal life.
  • We offer a range of field and laboratory experiences, from labs and practical or field-based sessions incorporated into our modules through to dissertation opportunities and the chance to do placements or exchanges with industry.

Cynnwys y Cwrs

On this course students are required to take 120 credits each year made up of lectures, practicals, and interactive exercises, as well as field trips and tutorials in years 1 and 2. The final year can include an integrated research project, which is supervised by a member of staff on a subject to suit the student’s interests. Modules become more specialised as the degree progresses and the number of compulsory modules varies between years. Assessment is by a mixture of formal examination and continuous assessment. Welsh medium modules are also available.

The Master in Zoology with Climate Change Studies is an extended undergraduate programme which allows students to graduate either with BSc (Hons) at the end of the third year or with a Master at the end of the fourth year.

If at the end of Year 2 a sufficient standard has been achieved, then progression onto the Masters year will be permitted following completion of Year 3. The fourth year offers a unique opportunity to conduct an extended research project either in the laboratory or in the field.

  • Rhan amser: £750 wrth 10 credyd

Ffioedd dysgu ar gyfer Myfyrwyr Rhyngwladol

Mandatory costs:

At present, the Zoology with Primatology primate-specific modules do not include many costs like this, but you may incur some if you choose to purchase your own copies of core textbooks instead of using the libraries’ copies or to purchase specialist software instead of using University computers.

Necessarily incurred costs:

If you choose to do International Experience or a Placement Year this will have associated costs of travel and so on, and you may find on some modules that you need to purchase wet-weather or specialist field clothing or personal protective equipment.

Some BSc and MZool dissertation projects may require travel for data collection or to attend conferences or specialist training.

Optional costs:

Optional costs for Zoology with Primatology may include field trip costs if you choose that module, e.g. the Primatology Field Course module currently costs around £1800-2000 for the two week field trip to Uganda. Other field trip options will vary in price.

You may choose to join a professional zoological or primatological society, but this is not essential for the course.

Alternatively, you may incur optional costs for graduation or attendance at some of our wide range of additional student experiences. Many of our offerings, like many Welcome Week activities, do not cost the student anything extra, but there may be exceptions especially for student society trips or extra-curriculars. These are entirely optional. 

Please note: The above examples are not exhaustive and specific examples are subject to change with inflation etc. (e.g. we cannot guarantee the cost of the Uganda field-trip prior to the year it is undertaken). Costs will depend on your choice of course and modules. There may be additional course-specific costs if you are a joint-honours student or in other ways have affiliations to several Schools.

Sut i Ymgeisio

Sut i wneud cais drwy UCAS

UCAS yw’r Gwasanaeth Derbyniadau i Brifysgolion a Cholegau

Mae pob cais i’r brifysgol yn cael ei brosesu drwy UCAS ac yna’n cael ei drosglwyddo i’r prifysgolion a restrwyd.

Gall myfyrwyr wneud cais am hyd at bum cwrs.

Ar gyfer Meddygaeth, Deintyddiaeth a chyrsiau Milfeddygol dim ond pedwar cwrs caiff myfyrwyr restru.

Mae’r ffurflen gais i’w chael ar wefan UCAS, o dan ‘Apply’. Y dyddiad cau ar gyfer Prifysgolion Rhydychen a Chaergrawnt a chyrsiau Meddygaeth, Deintyddiaeth a Milfeddygaeth ydy 15 Hydref.

Ar gyfer pob cwrs arall y dyddiad cau ydy 15 Ionawr.

Datganiad Personol

Y Datganiad Personol yw’r rhan o’r ffurflen gais sy’n gofyn am fwyaf o waith.

Cewch ddefnyddio dim ond 47 o linellau neu 500–550 o eiriau i egluro pam yr ydych am astudio’r cwrs, a’r sgiliau sydd gennych sy’n hanfodol ar gyfer astudio yn y brifysgol.

I ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddiannus mae’n rhaid i chi fod â dealltwriaeth dda am y cwrs a’i gynnwys. Cofiwch mai dim ond un datganiad personol rydych yn ei hysgrifennu ar gyfer eich pum dewis.

Gwnewch yn siwr bod y cyrsiau yn debyg, os nad yw yr un fath, a gwnewch yn siŵr nad ydych yn sôn am gwrs neu brifysgol penodol.

Darllenwch ein cyngor ar ysgrifennu datganiad personol llwyddianus neu gwyliwch ein fideos.

Ar ôl gwneud cais

Gallwch gadw llygaid ar eich cais drwy system UCAS ‘Track’. Bydd cynigion gan brifysgolion yn ymddangos ar Track a gallwch dderbyn neu wrthod cynnig.

Rhaid i chi fod wedi derbyn atebion gan bob prifysgol cyn y gallwch ymateb. Mae dau fath o ymateb – derbyn pendant (firm acceptance) a derbyn wrth gefn (insurance acceptance). Fel arfer mae myfyrwyr yn ymateb ar ddechrau mis Mai.

Ansicr am eich camau nesaf?
