Course Description

This Master’s degree programme consists solely of a 12-month research project. With several years as a senior meteorologist, you will already have the skills, knowledge and expertise to undertake this stand-alone independent, workplace-based project.

You will be encouraged to discover your own research subject for investigation, whether that is researching new technologies, reviewing the science behind human activity, climate change and the weather or proposing an innovative initiative to improve reporting accuracy. Whatever you decide, we recommend your project be aligned with your aspirations in your current or chosen field of work.

During the 12 months you will plan, execute, and report on your chosen project. Following successful completion, you will graduate and be awarded the MSc Advanced Meteorology for Professionals by the University of Plymouth.

Please note, there are no taught modules as part of this programme.
