Now that you’ve mastered some essentials, why not study meteorology at university? The University of Reading offers a BSc in Meteorology and Climate, and your completion of the online course will stand you in good stead to study the subject at undergraduate level.

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’ll also 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 course?
