Information from the department - programmes
Welcome to studying at the Department of Meteorology, Stockholm university.
All accepted students receive a welcome letter via email with important information for their studies. If you are accepted to our Bachelor degree programme, then you will study mathematics and physics during the first two years at the Department of Physics.
At MISU, the programme starts with a mandatory roll call. You will get more detailed information about the roll call via email. If you plan to start the education but for some reason cannot participate at the roll call, please contact our study counselor. Otherwise you risk losing your spot in the course. Contact information for the study counselor is listed at the bottom of this page.
Choice of courses within the programme
You will automatically be accepted to the initial courses within the programme if you have been accepted to a programme at MISU. You will also get information about this via email. If you have selectable courses during the autumn semester within your programme then you need to choose those courses at the start of the semester. Information about this will be provided at the roll call.
You can register for the initial courses of the programme through your University account if you are accepted to a programme at MISU. If you have problems registering, please contact our study counselor. Contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.
If you have been accepted with conditions then you must contact the study counselor before you can start the education. Please do this as soon as possible and well ahead of the start of the first course of the program. Contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.
On a waiting list
Have you received information that you are on a waiting list for a programme? You will always be contacted by us via email if you are accepted. Generally, we do not accept anyone from the waiting list after 1 week into the semester.
Find your way to MISU
MISU has its own lecture rooms and all of them are in the same corridor as the rest of the department. You will get your own entry card to get access to the department. MISU is located on 6th floor, building C in the Arrhenius Laboratories.
Classes during the autumn semester 2020
Classes will primarily be held onsite at MISU and we follow the recommendations of Folkhälsomyndigheten (Public Health Agency of Sweden). We are trying to set the schedule so that rush hour commuting can be avoided as much as possible. Most staff members are working from home to facilitate for classes.
You can get more detailed information about each course via the teaching platform Athena. You will get access to each respective course page as soon as you activate your University account and have been registered for the course. If you have any questions, please contact the study counselor (contact information below).
Stockholm University organises a series of welcome activities that stretch over a few weeks at the beginning of each semester. The programme is voluntary (attendance is optional) and includes Arrival Service at the airport and an Orientation Day, see more details about these events below.
Your department may also organise activities for welcoming international students. More information will be provided by your specific department.
Find your way on campus
Stockholm University's main campus is in the Frescati area, north of the city centre. While most of our departments and offices are located here, there are also campus areas in other parts of the city.
For new international students
You will use mathematics and physics to describe the processes that govern the weather and the Earth's climate. A meteorologist studies the atmosphere by using computer models and advanced measuring techniques.
Meteorology is a wide subject including both physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere. The programme offers a broad education in the subject, mostly based on physics but also including atmospheric chemistry and oceanography. Meteorologists can work with for example daily weather forecasts or with the future climate of the Earth.
