How we teach you
The MScs in Applied Meteorology (AM), Applied Meteorology and Climate with Management (AMCM), Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate (AOC) and Data Assimilation and Inverse Methods in Geoscience (DAIMG) all involve two terms (Autumn and Spring) of teaching that together contribute 2/3 of the overall mark for the MSc. This phase of teaching is followed by the production of a dissertation, counting for 1/3 of the overall mark, during May to mid-August.
The taught modules consist of a mixture of lectures, problem classes, laboratory and computer practical classes, a one week team project and a weekend residential field trip module (the last two items do not involve the DAIMG students).
A mixture of coursework and examinations plus the dissertation contribute to the final assessment.
Diploma students require 120 credits by taking all compulsory modules in the Autumn and Spring Term along with the requisite number of selected modules from the Spring Term and the Met Office Forecasting week in late April/early May OR one optional module in Spring Term plus an extended essay that must be submitted by the end of June.
