I've applied to do MSc Hydrogeology at both University of Birmingham and University of Strathclyde, and I'm struggling to decide which one to pick. The modules at Strathclyde seem a lot more interesting and less intense than at Birmingham, but then Birmingham must look more intense for a reason. Is it better in terms of getting a job afterwards? Any input would be a massive help (including about the area, cost of living etc).

Ask the unis where their grads end up. Go with the course that is more interesting for you.

Yes, I’m now working as a hydrogeologist at a consultancy. I would definitely recommend the course, I learned a lot and the staff are really supportive. It’s also well recognised by employers in the industry.

I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. Some modules were hard, but there was a lot of support from the staff. The hydrogeology course at Birmingham also has a good reputation with industry.

For me personally I found the modelling modules hard, but it just depends what you’re good at

I don’t have any book recommendations sorry. Maybe looking at some online tutorials/videos might help

Thank you
I can’t remember specifics, but we used modelling software MODFLOW and MODPATH/MT3D and ran it in Groundwater Vistas. I’m not sure if they’re still teaching the same software though.
