Study at Gateway Antarctica

researcher being followed by a line of emperor penguins, Antarctica

We offer a selection of postgraduate qualifications in Antarctic Studies including the limited entry Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies – the only programme in the world that provides students with the real-world experience of undertaking Antarctic research in Antarctica.

While you cannot major or minor in Antarctic Studies as an undergraduate student, you can take courses in the subject as part of any degree. The courses are a good addition to any Science degree and complement all majors. We also offer a popular online summer course for those with a thirst for Antarctic knowledge.

We offer two specialised degrees, while it is also possible to major in Antarctic Studies in three generic science qualifications.

We regret to announce that the Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies has been postponed for the foreseeable future

Our three undergraduate courses are an interesting and popular addition to any degree.
