O que eu aprenderei?

Gain a deep quantitative understanding of the climate system with our MSc Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate.

This course will prepare you for a career in meteorology-related science and research, with a focus on:

  • a quantitative description of the physical processes that produce weather
  • the physical and dynamical building blocks of our climate
  • the numerical and computational methods used to construct state-of-the-art models of the climate system.

Whether you want to mitigate the impact of hazardous weather events, understand how our changing climate may affect the jet stream, or even look further afield and forecast space weather – or focus your efforts elsewhere within meteorology and climate science - we will help you develop the scientific and analytical skills you need.

Choosing MSc Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate means you will join our world-class Department of Meteorology - the University of Reading is ranked 2nd in the world for research in Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (Center for World University Rankings by Subject, 2017).

This course is fully accredited by the Royal Meteorological Society (RMetS) and is your first step towards becoming professionally accredited as either a Registered Meteorologist (RMet) or Chartered Meteorologist (CMet).


Careers for MSc Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate graduates

Many of our graduates go on to study a PhD with us. Others pursue research and development careers in industry.

A master’s in atmosphere, oceans and climate provides you with the knowledge, as well as the technical and computing skills, to carry out quantitative scientific research and projects in meteorology and related areas of environmental science.

In fact, some of our students have published their master’s research projects in mainstream scientific journals even before they graduate.
