Department of Zoology


The Department of Zoology comprises 11 lecturing and 8 support staff members (administrative and technical) as well as 55 graduate students studying for Honours, MSc. or PhD degrees. The number of undergraduates studying our courses has grown steadily in recent years. Our final year class for zoology consists of more than 30 students, as well as 30 students for final year human physiology. We have a very strong research history with almost 50% of staff members being rated as excellent scientists with the National Research Foundation. Over the past five years, our work has been published in more than 35 different international and national peer review journals. Our research also features regularly in popular science magazines such as BBC Wildlife Magazine, as well as on national radio and television.
