We are the only dedicated meteorology department in the UK, and also host significant components of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO).
A new, state-of-the-art international headquarters for the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) is also to be built on our Whiteknights campus.
By choosing to study with us, you will join what will become the largest community of weather and climate scientists in the world.
Our Department is a dynamic environment, where you can learn from and work with internationally recognised research and teaching staff – including five Fellows of the Royal Society and climate experts who contribute to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
Supportive learning environment
You'll find a strong sense of community within the Department of Meteorology. Staff and students get to know one another thanks to our excellent staff-to-student ratio.
Our departmental coffee room, which sits at the heart of the Department, is a place where everyone can share their passion for climate science in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Expand your knowledge through our regular seminar series
During term time, we hold weekly departmental and lunchtime seminars featuring guest speakers from the meteorological and climate sectors, as well as speakers from within the Department.
Open to everyone, these seminars are a great way to learn more about a particular topic or issue. We update our list of seminars at the beginning of each term.
