I would like to know as the university I am applying for doesn't do a zoology undergraduate degree and I can't go to a university too far away. Any answers appreciated

So are you planning to do your undergraduate and PhD at the same university?

Different universities, I can't leave family at moment due to personal circumstances so can only do an open university course as closest university is an hour away and would like do a zoology PhD or Animal science equivalent at different university in three years time when things should be sorted. I've done some research and can't really find any answers. If it's not possible then I will probably have to wait three years until undergraduate degree, maybe slightly less. I would like to start university soon though as I'm already a year behind.

As long as your undergraduate degree is in a cognisant/relevant subject, then I don't see why it could be a problem.

Okay, thank you. I was a little worried that a biology focused course wasn't enough as there wouldn't be enough focus on animals. But if it's relevant then I hope a university will still accept me at postgraduate level as I do plan on getting some experience with animals by then. Thank you for your answers.

If you can choose your modules at any stage, you can try to focus on animal-related ones. Also, if you plan to propose your own project for your PhD, you can choose the focus.

The answer to you question is yes but OU degrees can take longer to complete.You might do better to wait until you can move away.
