Nick - Geography

Studied: Geography and Environmental Management (now BSc(Hons) Geography).

I protect the world’s natural resourcesNick - UWE Bristol student

Geography and Environmental Management student Nick has a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to share since he started his course at UWE Bristol. 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.

Research culture

Nick says, "Students are more a part of the research culture here. At UWE Bristol, 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.

Getting a head-start

He also feels he has been given a head-start in his career, “UWE Bristol 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."

* The project was supported by funding from the Royal Geographical Society, RANNIS (Icelandic Centre for Research) and UWE Bristol.
