Why study at SPRI?
SPRI's graduate degrees have an international reputation for excellence in all areas of polar research. Many of our alumni are among the most prominent figures in this field.
Our MPhil course is structured to provide a focus on research activity. The course is divided into two 'strands'; Humanities and Social Sciences in Polar Regions, and Polar Physical Sciences. We wish to recruit students to investigate specific research topics within each strand, with each student nested within one of the Institute's specialist research groups. Some possible research topics for the coming year are listed.
We are actively seeking new research students in all subject areas contained on this website.
