Nick - BSc(Hons) Geography and Environmental Management
I protect the world’s natural resources
Nick was a member of ‘Ice cap to Ocean 2011’*, a six week research expedition in Iceland that involved a study of river corridors and hydropower development.
BSc(Hons) Geography and Environmental Management student Nick has a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to share since he started his course at UWE. He talks particularly passionately about his time in Iceland where he looked at the impact of hydropower on glacial rivers.
“Students are more a part of the research culture here. At UWE, students learn from tutors directly and are able to have more one-to-one time.”
But different fieldtrips and placements have not only helped him to pursue his passion to solve environmental issues.
He also feels he has been given a head-start in his career
“UWE and my chosen course have definitely given me the option to go onto whatever I want to do in future. During my placements I've gained valuable experience of working within the industry, which has immensely improved my employability and career prospects."
