The specialisation in Meteorology is for you who want to get a deep understanding of the weather and climate systems. Expertise in atmospheric physics is in high demand in Sweden and internationally, so your studies in meterology will set you up for an international career. You will be equally well prepared to apply for positions at national weather services, private companies, municipalities, and for further PhD studies.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The specialisation in Meteorology, within the Master’s Programme in Physics, lets you apply your background in physics on the atmosphere. You will study different aspects of meteorology such as atmospheric dynamics, thermodynamics, climate variations and climate change. You will learn meteorology on both local and global scale and gain skills in applied meteorology e.g. wind-power calculations and dispersion of pollutants. We also offer courses in numerical modelling of the atmosphere and practical meteorology, a hands-on course in forecast methodology.
During the programme you can expect to:
- apply your background in physics on the atmosphere and learn meteorology on both local and global scale
- study forecast methodology or choose a more theoretical direction
- open structure let you specialise in your particular area of interest
This programme is developed in coordination with research groups at Uppsala University. The tutors are active researchers and the courses are linked to the frontline of physics research.
The open structure of the programme provides you with many opportunities to broaden the educational scope and to specialise in your particular area of interest. It is concluded with a 5 month individual research degree project, in cooperation with a research group at a university, in industry or at a public authority.
You are naturally curious about how the world works and realize that formulating a question can be just as important as finding the answer. You have a good theoretical foundation in both Physics and Mathematics and experience in using it to analyse data or create computer-based tools to solve problems.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in the field. So, if you are searching for theanswer, a Master’s degree in physics from Uppsala University might be exactly what takes you there.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Physics as the main field of study. After one year of study it may also be possible to obtain a Master of Science (60 credits).
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university.
Also required is 75 credits in physics.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies; and
- a statement of purpose (1 page).
Tuition fee-paying students and non-paying students are admitted on the same grounds but in different selection groups.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
