This unique degree gives you the chance to learn how the atmosphere and the oceans work and interact. No other UK university offers this combination, but the two disciplines are equally important in understanding the Earth’s climate system and our impact upon it. You’ll also have the chance to gain experience in industry on a year-long placement.

The course is taught jointly by our Environmental Sciences and Mathematics schools, both of which are highly ranked for research – 1st for impact and 7th for quality in the UK respectively – so you’ll benefit from our academics’ diverse and world-class expertise.

The degree incorporates field courses that will expose you to advanced scientific instruments, compulsory modules that lay the scientific foundations for understanding the environment, and a wide range of optional modules that enable you to focus on different themes. You’ll also undertake an independent research project in your final year to bring all of your training together.

Cosa impari in questo corso?

GCSE Mathematics


This four year course follows a similar structure to the BSc Oceanography and Meteorology, but with an additional year of gaining work experience on an industrial placement in your third year. The first year of study comprises compulsory core modules to establish your knowledge on essential topics. You will have the chance to select from optional modules in the second and final year in order to allow you to direct your own studies. In the final year you will also have the opportunity to undertake an independent research project on a subject of your choice.

Year 1
A series of compulsory modules introduce you to the general scientific principles governing our environment, including Global Environmental Challenges and Understanding the Dynamic Planet. Multi-disciplinary modules from the wider Faculty of Science allow you to develop the essential analytical skills you will need during further years – including Maths for Scientists and Field Skills.

Year 2
As the course progresses you will undertake a range of compulsory scientific modules, including Meteorology and Waves, and Tides and Shallow Water Processes. Mathematics for Scientists continues to develop your capacity for mathematical theory. You will also have the option to take a Meteorological Field Course in the Lake District.

Year 3 (Year in Industry)
You will spend your third year on an industrial work placement lasting from 9 to 14 months, gaining relevant experience and developing your skills and knowledge. We have established research links throughout the UK and beyond, and we will help you in identifying and competing for appropriate positions.

Year 4
During your final year of study you will undertake an individual research project, allowing you to investigate a specialist area in professional depth. You also choose from a range of modules relevant to the oceans and/or atmosphere, allowing you to advance your physical/dynamical understanding of the climate system and its variability, and/or to develop skills in atmospheric and/or marine chemistry.

You will also undertake a free choice module from any school across the university, subject to permission. This gives you the opportunity to enhance your scientific skills with business acumen or take a foreign language to improve your international employability.
