PCAS/MASt Applications

Applications for the Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies (PCAS) and Master of Antarctic Studies (MASt) need to be submitted by 9 April 2020. A decision on whether your application has been successful will be made in early September.

Final acceptance into either programme is conditional upon meeting the University of Canterbury enrolment criteria, acquiring wilderness first aid certification, and passing a medical examination required by Antarctica New Zealand. The limited number of spaces available on these programmes each year means that entry into the programme is competitive. Note that the MASt is considered the preferred pathway for access and applications from students who commit to MASt are considered PCAS applications.

Students applying for other programmes of study can do so via myUC.
