Polar Studies (Scott Polar Research Institute) is no longer accepting new applications.

The MPhil Polar Studies course allows you to delve deeply into polar literature and come to understand, not just processes and issues at play in the Arctic and Antarctic, but also how to frame investigations in ways that are appropriate and useful for the communities being studied. The dissertation gives you the chance to make use of the incredible resources available at SPRI and to work with some of the world’s leading experts in polar geography. I've never been as intellectually challenged as I have during the course and will come away with a more critical and thorough understanding of the polar regions and our relationship with them.
