The School of Meteorology has exchange partnerships with Reading University in England, Hamburg University in Germany, and Monash University in Australia. Students from these institutions study at the School and our qualified Meteorology students can study abroad in their junior year. Students interested in studying abroad should speak with the one of the School’s study abroad coordinators and visit the OU Education Abroad office.
