Master of Mathematics (MMath) - Mathematics and Meteorology (GFC9) at University of Reading: Tuition Fee: £23,700.00 GBP / Year (Scholarship Available)

Modern weather forecasting and climate prediction rely upon accurate numerical modelling of the atmosphere and oceans. This masters-level course will enable students to develop their mathematics skills whilst gaining a broad knowledge of meteorology and environmental physical science. Students will spend roughly equal amounts of time on both subjects.

In mathematics students will study the theory and application of differential equations, underpinned with a knowledge of calculus, analysis and linear algebra. Students will be given plenty of support to help you get the most out of their studies, including small group problem-solving tutorials and materials to help them manage the transition to university-level mathematics. 

In meteorology students will explore the inner workings of weather systems from a physical and dynamic viewpoint. The course is theory-based and will cover subjects such as atmospheric physics, numerical methods, climate change, and weather and climate fundamentals. In the second year students will also take a skills module, which is designed to improve their transferable skills and enhance their employability. Many of Reading's excellent teaching staff are world leaders in their fields and a number are Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) authors and Fellows of the Royal Society. 

During the third and final years of the degree students can develop their knowledge by exploring areas of interest in greater depth. Half of the modules in this year are optional and include subjects from both areas of the course such as boundary layer meteorology, calculus of variations and oceanography. Students will also complete a research project on a mathematical topic in the third year and an area of meteorology during the final year. A member of staff will support students in this work and, whichever research topic students pick, they can be sure of getting expert supervision.
