Meteorology and Oceanography with a Year Abroad

Study the atmosphere and oceans and how their interactions shape our understanding of the weather, the climate and their variability. You will spend approximately one third of your degree studying mathematical techniques and gaining the skills needed to analyse and model the atmosphere and oceans. These transferable skills will be invaluable in your future career. Field work options allow you to investigate ocean processes in shelf seas and track balloons to determine local airflow. You will undertake a final-year independent research project on a topic that matches your interests. This four-year programme follows the BSc structure for the first three years (with the third year studying abroad) and culminates with a fourth year of Master’s modules. These include topics such as ocean observing systems; wind, wave, tidal and hydro energy engineering; dynamical oceanography/meteorology; and climate change science. You will also complete a substantial piece of independent research, supervised by a research-active faculty member. Our meteorology and oceanography degrees are accredited by the Royal Meteorological Society, making it easier for you to go on to gain Chartered Meteorologist status. You will spend the third year of your studies at an exchange university in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand or Europe. Then you will return to UEA to complete a fourth year of Master’s-level modules. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience another culture at the same time as broadening your academic and personal horizons. You could study in departments that allow you to explore different aspects of your subject. The chance to examine other countries in the context of your chosen subject is particularly useful in strengthening your employment prospects.
