D'Arcy attended Edinburgh Academy and entered Edinburgh University as a medical student in 1877. In 1879 he went to Trinity College, Cambridge, where he took the Natural Science Tripos and in 1884 was appointed Professor of Biology at University College, Dundee. There he encouraged the study of arctic zoology through contact with the whaling captains who operated from Dundee.
