The Circumpolar North is a place full of opportunity. The Arctic is one of the fastest growing regions on the planet in terms of global importance and world economy.
As a student living in or interested in the North, the University of the Arctic (UArctic) offers students at our member institutions a wide range of programs which are relevant to research and careers in circumpolar regions. You have the ability to learn about the Arctic online, in traditional classrooms, in the field or abroad.
Students studying at UArctic member institutions have the ability to take the Circumpolar Studies undergraduate program and go on exchange to another part of the Arctic through the North2North mobility program.
If you are living outside the North, and wish to pursue a degree at a northern higher education institution, check out the UArctic Catalogue for education opportunities that fit your goals.
Our courses address the full spectrum of education in the North, through traditional and innovative approaches, to give you the right tools for building a strong, empowered and sustainable circumpolar world. Degree programs at our member institutions have international recognition and all credits are guaranteed by the European Credit Transfer System.
