Students taking the PhD with Integrated Study in Atmospheric Sciences and Air Pollution take 120 credits of modules, selected from a wide range including:
- Research Methods (10 credits; core module)
- Causes & Effects of Air Pollution (20 credits)
- Climate Change (10 credits)
- Air Pollution Meteorology (10 credits)
- Air Pollution Chemistry (20 credits)
- Air Quality Management (10 credits)
- Atmospheric Observations (10 credits)
- Atmospheric Composition & Physics (20 credits)
- Theoretical Meteorology – Atmospheric Dynamics (20 credits)
- Weather Forecasting and Climate Modelling (20 credits)
