PCAS/MASt Applications

We regret to inform you that applications for the Postgraduate Certificate in Antarctic Studies (PCAS) and Master of Antarctic Studies (MASt) are presently not being accepted. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the New Zealand Antarctic field programme is under significant pressure and cannot support our PCAS/MASt field programme.  We had to make the difficult decision to put the PCAS/MASt programmes on hold until further notice as Antarctic fieldwork forms an integral part of these programmes.



We will post an update here and on the Gateway Antarctica website [include link to site] when we are able to offer PCAS/MASt again.  So, stay tuned and do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in exploring alternative Antarctic postgraduate research programmes (e.g. as MSc or PhD pathways).

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