MSc's degrees in Europe... (Oceanogr./Atmosp./Planet./Envir.)

  1. Nov 9, 2015 #1

    I am about to complete my BSc in Physics and I'd like to pursue a MSc in a field related to Climate or Environmental Physics.
    I'd like it to be a mainly experimental curriculum with a decent amount of simulation/data analysis and to be in a country with none to low fees for EU students (*not necessarily in Europe).
    I think I'd like anything related to oceanography, glaciology, physics of the atmosphere, planetary physics, pollution models, climate change, satellite-based earth observation.
    I'd also like to do some field trips and a research expedition as a part of the master's thesis.

    I also consider as a pro the presence of policy making or economics related courses in the program or as extra-curricular activities.

    Googling I found even too many programs of this kind offered, therefore I'd like a more personal advice, from alumni or anything close to first-hand experience, as too choose a good institution.

    I speak English and German apart from my mother tongue.

    Thanks in advance

    The Royal Society (UK) and the universities it recommends, and the Open University (for some distance-learning courses that are much more affordable than Lehigh University's; and for some campus laboratories in the summer time), before suscribing in a Msc at a university in England. The RS, whose I was a donator$, is the most credible & reputated learned society in the world. I have participated in its Internet forum in 1995 with 10 opinions. Nevertheless I beleive that late Isaac Newton and some helpers, plagiarized the german inventor of calculus.
