Student engagement is highly valued within our department, and ample opportunities exist for student feedback and presentations, whether in small tutor groups or to larger audiences.
During term-time, the weekly Friday lunchtime Weather and Climate Discussion (WCD) is open to all members of the department, students and staff, and everyone is encouraged to present or discuss topics of current interest in an interactive forum. Undergraduate students also prepare and present a team-based research project as part of WCD during their final year General Studies module.
We also run a twice-weekly departmental seminar programme, featuring presentations on a very wide range of current research topics. These are delivered both by invited external speakers (many of whom are internationally-recognised experts in their fields) as well as members of the department. Undergraduate students are welcomed and encouraged to attend the departmental seminar programme.
