This unique programme is aimed at training graduates from a range of scientific disciplines who wish to pursue a research career in cold-regions science, notably within the disciplines of glaciology, glacial geomorphology, polar climatology/ oceanography, environmental science, polar biogeochemical processes, or their intersections.
The programme's underlying theme is contemporary, as its key interest is to explore the expressions, mechanisms and impacts of rapid ongoing changes in our planet's cold regions.
An integral part of the programme is the Arctic/Alpine field course, which is usually in early to mid-summer. The costs for this field course are not included in the tuition fee.
You'll gain an in-depth knowledge of the location you visit. You'll also develop skills in relevant research approaches and techniques. You'll gain experience in project development and field application of research skills and techniques, and you'll learn how to analyse and communicate your research findings.
