This Masters will prepare you in the physical sciences and mathematics for a research career in climate, atmospheric or environmental sciences. It ideally bridges the gap between undergraduate studies in physical/natural sciences and engineering, and study for a PhD. Alternatively, if you decide to leave academia, the highly transferable skills gained from this course could lead to a research role in industry or government.
Gain a broad overview of physical problems in climate and atmospheric science, together with a sound physical understanding of natural processes. Alongside this, develop highly transferable skills to conduct research in these subjects with a strong emphasis on quantitative data analysis and physical and numerical modelling.
• Interact with academics who are at the forefront of major global issues. Leeds is a leading centre of excellence across both the physical science of the climate and atmosphere science, and the resultant socio-economic impacts and processes... - Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS) is the UK’s most diverse academic institute for atmospheric research. - National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS), one of six research centres funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), providing its core atmospheric research. - Priestley International Centre for Climate Change (PICC) a world-leading centre for policy-relevant, solution-driven climate research - Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) is a research centre that studies processes in the Earth's polar latitudes that may affect the Earth's albedo, polar atmosphere and ocean circulation, and global sea level. • Continue on to a PhD, or move into a research role in industry or government. Highly numerate graduates with training in independent research are widely sought after. • Develop your research skills – you will be regarded as a researcher in the School and expected to work closely with ICAS staff as well as presenting at the annual ICAS Science Conference along with academics and doctoral researchers.
Climate and Atmospheric Science UK/EU Scholarship
The School of Earth and Environment is offering a scholarship worth £6,500, to a UK/EU student of outstanding ability, achievement and potential – undertaking a full-time Masters in Climate and Atmospheric Science.We are ranked second in the UK for research power and quality, and in the top five in Europe for academic reputation in Earth Science, reassuring you we achieve high quality standards. The School is located in a £24 million building, providing world-class research, teaching and laboratory facilities, and dedicated computer suites. Many of which are available to you throughout your studies.
Value of Scholarship(s)
You must first hold an offer (conditional or unconditional) of an academic place on the Masters in Climate and Atmospheric Science for the academic year commencing September 2016, and be designated by the University as being of UK/EU fee status. All applications will be assessed on a competitive basis. A scholarship award cannot be deferred and will lapse if not accepted in September 2016.
Please submit a completed School of Earth and Environment Scholarship application by email to [email protected] by the deadline.An automated email response will confirm receipt of the scholarship application, please note that no further correspondence will be sent until the awards have been allocated by a sub-committee of programme leaders led by the Director of Masters Education in the School of Earth and Environment.
A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) or above in a physical science such as physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering, geophysics, atmospheric or environmental science, meteorology or oceanography. You should ideally have mathematics to a good A-level grade (or equivalent) as a minimum. Preferably, you will have also studied at least one year of university-level maths, though additional courses are available as part of this programme. We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
