Staff from the Institute are also involved with teaching across a number of the undergraduate degrees administered by the School of Life Sciences, including BSc. Marine & Freshwater Biology and BSc. Zoology.
Find out more about these degrees and who teaches on them.
Undergraduates are exposed to some of the latest research developed by members of the Institute and the School of Life Sciences. They also have fantastic opportunities to actively engage in research, both within formal training (honours projects) and through summer studentships.

University of Glasgow Exploration Society (ExSoc)
The University is also unique in having an historic Exploration Society (ExSoc), which has been helping teams of undergraduate students explore the world on zoological and geographical expeditions for many years. The earliest record of a student expedition is 1920, and over the past 90 years hundreds of students have had the chance to undertake research in the field. Officially founded in 1957, the Glasgow University Exploration Society has been promoting exploration and scientific fieldwork by members of the University, both students and staff, by sending expeditions abroad in the summer vacation.
