  • Overzicht

Climate-related research is highly relevant for society, scientifically interesting and challenging. Human-induced global climate change has grown into a sense of urgency over the last decades.

This programme aims to train students to become researchers with a solid grounding and focuses on the fundamental physical processes that make up the Earth's climate system.

Utrecht University offers a stimulating academic environment in which undergraduates actively participate in exciting projects and ongoing research. The teaching staff are all leading experts in components of the climate system from the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU). Besides lectures, field excursions and computer and laboratory experiments, participating in a sea-going scientific expedition may also be part of your programme.

The Faculty of Science in Utrecht is the largest of its kind in the Netherlands, with the IMAU as one of the very few research institutes in the world that addresses all components of the climate system - atmosphere, oceans, cryosphere and biosphere - and their interactions. The Climate Physics programme is closely integrated with te PhD programme of the Buys Ballot Research School (BBOS) which is led by IMAU. This relationship results in a stimulating, challenging, friendly environment in which students and staff often know eachother personally.
