Our high-quality teaching is geared towards the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.**Careers** A degree in Meteorology and Climate will provide you with a range of transferable skills, including teamwork, presenting, computing, data set analysis, numeracy, scientific writing and the ability to work to deadlines.This degree will prepare you for work as a forecaster or research scientist at a national organisation, such as the UK Met Office, or a commercial company.
