    So at York uni, they offer both a BSc Biology and a BSc Ecology course; both of which interest me. I am also looking into studying further at uni (either MSc or PhD in Zoology/Ecology), so BSc Ecology sounds good.

    However, I am not 100% sure, by the end of the course, if I'll still want to do this and I'm wondering if choosing BSc Ecology would be specialising too soon. Also I thought about which one, Biology or Ecology, would be best for Zoology. I looked at the course content for both and not only do they have the same basic structure, but they also offer the exact same modules over the 3 years. The only difference being that one module in year 2 (Organisms in their Environment) is compulsory in Ecology whilst optional in Biology but I feel I'd take it anyway.

    Which would be best given my situation? I am grateful for any response
    (p.s. this also applies for other university's I am looking at)

    If you're unsure then biology is better because you can then choose to take other things that interest you. You're right about your interests changing over time and only exploring will help you work out what they are.
