Course summary

We welcome applications to undertake research towards MPhil and PhD degrees in Atmospheric Science.

Research at Worcester has grown significantly in the last 10 years as the University itself has expanded. As a research student you will join a vibrant student community in our Research School and become part of our dynamic research environment.

The Atmospheric Science team at Worcester runs a range of experiments funded by UK research councils that are well suited for additional PhD studies in relation to vegetation and/or atmospheric science. It is affiliated within European funded exchange programmes providing extensive possibilities for travelling and longer-term visits at international partner universities.

Key features

  • Available as a full-time or part-time course (completed over a maximum of six years).
  • Links with European funded exchange programmes and experiments funded by UK research councils.
  • All students are offered a wide range of optional training workshops throughout the programme, focused around a wide range of themes.
  • Access an excellent range of resources and equipment, including meteorological observational equipment, a drone with meteorological sensors, pollen and spore traps and modelling facilities.
  • Our staff have a broad range of expertise in aerobiology, palynology, meteorology, climate, GIS, modelling, field studies, and air pollution.

Where could it take you?

All research students must engage with the Researcher Development Programme (RDP), a core curriculum of training and development which provides them with the general and subject-specific knowledge, skills and behaviours to support them in the completion of their research degree.

At the beginning of an MPhil/PhD degree, you will be allocated to one of two pathways depending on your experience and knowledge as a researcher. This will determine which elements of the programme are core and which are optional.At the beginning of the programme you will be required to complete a Training Needs Analysis (TNA) in conjunction with your Director of Studies.

This identifies the training that you will need to undertake, in addition to the mandatory elements of RDP, in order to complete the programme and to become an effective researcher. This TNA is revisited at the beginning of each subsequent academic year.

All students are offered a wide range of optional training workshops throughout the programme focused around the following themes:

  • Developing and Managing Your Research
  • Dissemination, Impact, Engagement
  • Completing Your Research Degree
  • Research Methodology Master classes
  • Data Analysis
  • Research Funding
  • Wellbeing and Personal Effectiveness
  • Careers and Employability
  • Enterprise and Entrepreneurship
