We supervise various BSc research projects related to our research projects. Undergraduate students from the Geography undergraduate at the University of Birmingham join us for a year to do their research project.

Current opportunities:

Please contact Anne Van Loon if you are interested in doing your undergraduate research project with us

Ongoing BSc projects:

  • Shannon AddyQuantify the effects of abstraction on groundwater droughts regionally in the UK
  • Grace OldknowThe effects of different groundwater regimes in periods of drought when applied to a groundwater model of Shropshire and the role of human involvement in groundwater drought
