There is a pressing national and international need to understand the nature and consequences of climatic change and to develop adaptation strategies. The UCL Climate Change MSc provides rigorous scientific and vocational training for the next generation of climate change professionals. What and how will I learn? The programme aims to provide you with knowledge and understanding of the Earth System (atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, lithosphere) and the nature and causes of climate variability and change. It combines empirically-based climate and environmental science with state-of-the-art modelling, specifically that concerned with understanding the impacts of climate change, and seeks to place climate change within the context of broader anthropogenic environmental change, and social policy dimensions. Degree Structure Core modules Climate Dynamics Oceans and Atmosphere Past Climates The Anthropocene Options OPTIONS MAY INCLUDE: Climate Modelling Coastal Change Environmental GIS Impacts of Climate Change on Hydro-ecological systems Terrestrial Carbon: Modelling and Monitoring Science and Politics of Climate Change Surface Water Modelling Dissertationreport All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 15,000 words and an oral presentation. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and laboratory and computer-based practical classes. Assessment is through independent project work, practical-based and written coursework, and the dissertation.

The MSc is run by UCL Geography, which enjoys an outstanding international reputation for its research and teaching. The Climate Change MSc brings together the strong expertise in the department, offering a distinctive blend of fundamental climate science, environmental modelling, impacts and adaptations, delivered from both natural and social science perspectives. By bringing together students and researchers we aim to create a vibrant and informal academic environment of mutual discovery and on-going debate. Your career The programme provides an ideal foundation for PhD research, or for employment with a wide range of private industries, non-governmental organisations, government agencies and environmental consultancies. Entry requirements A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject (such as Environmental Science, Geography, Oceanography, Biology, Chemistry or Engineering) from a UK university, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants with relevant professional experience in climate science or environmental management will also be considered. How to apply You may choose to apply online or download application materials, for details visit http:www.ucl.ac.ukprospective-studentsgraduate-studyapplication-admission Applications are accepted throughout the year for a September start. Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for students with a geographical or scientific background who are interested in acquiring a thorough understanding of the Earth's climate system and techniques for measuring and modelling its variability.
