BGS University Funding Initiative (BUFI)

BUFI is the home of doctoral research at the BGS and, in collaboration with universities, takes pride in being one of the UK’s largest providers of postgraduate research training in the applied geosciences. Our researchers can use our state-of-the-art science and technical facilities, including the most comprehensive collection of subsurface information held in our National Geoscience Data Centre. Students can undertake a wide range of training and, crucially, students are able to interact with a diverse range of internationally renowned scientists. Our students study a wide range of topics, reflecting the BGS challenge areas.
