Key elements of this Meteorology and Air Quality specialisation from Wageningen University and Research are the physics of atmospheric systems and climate processes, as well as computer skills and advanced statistics.
Other topics are physical-chemical processes, the composition of the atmosphere, and the exchange between the atmosphere and the Earth’s surface. You examine these processes at a local and global level, developing models based on your fieldwork.
You can contribute to the further understanding of atmospheric processes and their relevance for weather and climate and focus on the physics of atmospheric systems and climate processes, creating numerical models to fully describe the three-dimensional state of the atmosphere and its evolution in time. You learn to collect and process meteorological and climatological information efficiently with a view to the projection of future conditions of the atmosphere and the climate system.
Or you can specialise in the physical-chemical processes, the composition of the atmosphere and the exchange between atmosphere and the earth’s surface. You examine these processes at a local and global level, developing models based on your fieldwork. The models you create can be used for developing environmental policy, air quality inventory and scenario analysis. Computer skills and advanced statistics form key elements in this track.
MSc Earth and Environment graduates can continue their academic training as PhD student or start a career as a scientific professional at a university, research institute or consultancy agency. Depending on their specialisation, graduates may take up positions as meteorologists, hydrologists, water quality scientists or soil scientist.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
