Congratulations on completing Week 1!

Are you considering applying to study meteorology or climate science at university?

The University of Reading offers a BSc in Meteorology and Climate.

At Reading, you’ll be joining a course of study accredited by the Royal Meteorological Society. You’ll also benefit from the Department’s close links to industry and a range of opportunities to enhance your employability. You will have the chance to complete an independent research project on a topic of your choice, perhaps focusing on the currents of hurricanes and typhoons or the effect of climate change on crops.

You can find out more about the BSc Meteorology and Climate on the University of Reading website.


Next week, we’ll be moving on to look at high pressure weather systems (anticyclones), air masses and rainfall. There’ll be a chance to try some simple weather fieldwork, as well as some more exercises and quizzes.
