I’m interested in studying zoology and geography but I don’t know which.
Anyone with an insight on my best chances of employment in both fields - please let me know! Also is there much wildlife work in geography?

You can get a job in bascically any field after graduation because of the skills you learnt. Although a relevant degree sometimes helps.

Are there any unis that do those two as a combined/joint honours?

I’ve only found one but it’s not a university I’d like to go to. I’d love to go to Exeter and if I choose geography I’d apply for Oxford. (They don’t do zoology)

I know Oxford do zoology as a Master's and Cambridge you can apply to do Natural Sciences which then moves onto zoology. I was stuck between zoology or Geography, they both provide loads of jobs equally. I chose zoology in the end as I was more interested in animals and more a biological aspect of science rather than Geography. Geography is more to do with almost earth sciences like Tectonics and Coasts (depending on whether you are doing Bsci or BA, BA is more social aspect of Geography like Globalisation etc), whereas Zoology is a biological science focusing on animals. Personally, I would choose a subject that you would find most interesting, at the end of the day job prospectuses are high which ever uni degree you do. Good luck!
