I'm 16, just started my a levels so I have a while before I'll be working. But this is absolutely I want to do so am looking for universities with the appropriate courses so I know what to aim for.

You probably want to be looking at Environmental Sciences courses.

That's all I can really think of off the top of my head.

Geography, maybe?
First thing that springs to my mind when I see 'climate change.' Or maybe a course in Environmental Sciences, or something similar to that

For AS level I am doing both those and biology and chemistry I really enjoy those subjects so I'll be really happy if they are!

It depends on what angle you want to study climate change from - it's a massive subject. If you're interested in the actual dynamics of the climate, Physics or Geophysics would probably be the best path to take. For most other aspects, I think a Geology or Earth Sciences degree would be the best route. I wouldn't recommend studying Environmental Science because I'm not sure if it's the best path to get into research - you'd be better off doing a broader Geology or Physics based course.

But as others have said, you don't need to wait for university to start studying it! There are lots of really good books that you should be able to get through. I'd recommend "The Two-Mile Time Machine" as a good starting point.

Earth science, environmental science or geography are probably your best bet!
