Course content

The PhD with Integrated Study has been developed to provide a new route to the internationally-respected British PhD degree by incorporating subject knowledge, research training and the development of transferable skills.

The programme normally lasts for four years and combines a broad foundation in atmospheric science and air pollution through taught and assessed coursework, with the full research training and experience of a traditional PhD within which a student pursues their own research in a tightly-focused area.

The course combines taught modules (taken during years 1 and 2), in the areas of meteorology and air pollution, selected to match the candidate’s background, interests and research topic, with independent research work (performed predominantly in years 3 and 4), leading to the award of a PhD degree.
