MSc Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate (MSc AOC) – Atmosphere and ocean sciences are built on physics and mathematics. This MSc is for those who want to make the most of their maths or physics training, to enter a growing and exciting scientific field and aiming for a research or R&D industrial career, including going on to PhD.

MSc Applied Meteorology (MSc AM) – Interpretation/use of meteorological data and forecasting are skills which are highly sought-after in a variety of industry sectors, including energy, insurance, and government. This MSc is for those with a general science background who want to focus on forecasting and other applications of meteorological science.

MSc Applied Meteorology and Climate with Management (MSc AMCM) – designed for staff of National Weather Services to develop further knowledge in meteorological science and management, this course combines most of the meteorological and climate science modules of the Applied Meteorology (MSc AM) programme with management training through Henley Business School, part of the University of Reading. Each year The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) provides a number of fellowships for students on the AMCM programme, although students funded by other organisations or who are self-funded are also welcome to apply.
