The University of East Anglia is currently the only University in the UK where you can study these two specialist subjects side-by-side in a combined degree format. The BSc in Meteorology and Oceanography from University of East Anglia is designed to provide you with an insight into how the atmosphere and oceans work and interact. This approach gives you a detailed understanding of the Earth's climate system, alongside the impact of human society on the atmospheric and oceanic systems.
Because the degree programme is taught jointly between the Schools of Environmental Sciences and Mathematics, you will have an opportunity to choose from a range of module options, enabling you to pursue either a wide portfolio of subjects or specialise in a particular area.
Field courses in Oceanography and Meteorology provide you with valuable hands-on experience designing experiments and working with scientific instrumentation. You will also benefit from our own in-house weather forecasting company, Weatherquest, which provides valuable teaching support and an opportunity to spend a week working in order to gain commercial awareness of the meteorological industry.
Some of our Meteorology and Oceanography students have also gained valuable experience on research cruises whilst conducting the fieldwork for their final year project.
This degree course is accredited both by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and by the Royal Meteorological Society.
