For the second year running the University is working with organisations that may be interested in harnessing the talent and enthusiasm of its students while providing students with a valuable opportunity to conduct dissertation research that is driven by ‘real world’ demand.
The Climate Change Science and Policy course covers a wide range of topics including environmental policy and politics, GIS and remote sensing, earth systems modelling and past and future climate simulations. Possible topics will be presented to students by the end of term so projects are needed by 17th December. Students will then arrange to meet with external partners to develop a terms of reference in January.
For the Environmental Policy and Management course projects should relate to environmental policy and management issues (broadly defined) at any scale, from the very local (e.g. neighbourhood level) to the global. The deadline for this course is 23rd January. Students will then arrange to meet with external partners to develop a terms of reference in February.
