The program consists of 33 ECTS points, which means it could be taken as a 1 year program. However, it is also possible to follow only a limited number of courses.

The first semester consists of some basic courses like general meteorology, climatology, … In the second semester one will build further on this basis in more specific courses.

The weekly course sessions are concentrated on Monday and Tuesday. 
Atmospheric modeling is an exception on this rule because it is taught by different specialists from abroad. The schedule is made after deliberation with the students.

The courses mostly take place in the S9 building on Campus De Sterre, Ghent.
For the distribution of the course material and the communication with the students the Ufora platform is used. All courses are taught in English.
