Dear all,

*MSc in Polar and Alpine Change, 2015-16*

*Department of Geography, University of Sheffield, UK*

I write with information about this MSc course offered at our university,
which may interest applicants looking for studies in the broad area of
Cryospheric / Climate / Environmental Science.

This MSc explores some of the most dramatic environmental and climatic
changes on our planet --- those occurring in polar and alpine regions.
Students learn about the processes and changes in these regions and gain
skills in scientifically analysing and interpreting them. The course is 1
year long and taught by our climatologists and glaciologists. A core part
of it is a month-long summer fieldclass to Svalbard in the Norwegian
Arctic. As part of the training, each student also completes a supervised
research dissertation over an eight-month period.

We invite applicants with a record of performing at UK Upper-Second Class
level or above (or at an equivalent level overseas) at undergraduate level,
including applicants with background in Physical Geography,
Science, Physics, Mathematics, Biology, and Engineering.

Many of our graduates have been successful in moving on to PhD studies in
glaciology, climate science, biogeochemistry and planetary science.

*Our next Open Day is Thursday 27th November 2014. *There will be more open
days later in the academic year. The application round for 2015/16 entry is
open. Details of the course and the application procedure can be found at:


Please email geo-apply at sheffield.ac.uk if you wish to book a place on an
Open Day or know more information.

Best wishes,

Felix Ng
Director of MSc in Polar and Alpine Change
