MSc(Res) in Polar and Alpine Change, 2016-17

Department of Geography, University of Sheffield, UK

I write with information about this 1-year Masters of Research
(MSc(Res)) course offered by our university, which may interest
applicants looking for study with a heavy research element within the
broad subject area of cold-regions science, e.g. in glaciology, glacial
geomorphology, polar climatology and environmental science.

The programme targets those wishing to gain research experience and
skills before progressing to a PhD, and is founded on the expertise of
the group of Ice and Climate Researchers in my department. Training is
delivered via a major Research Project that the student carries out with
regular supervision. Another key feature of the programme is a
Field-Course module visiting Svalbard, Norway for 4-5 weeks in the summer.

We invite applicants who perform at least at good Upper-Second Class
undergraduate level (and show First Class potential) from a UK
University or at an international equivalent, in subjects such as
Physical Geography, Environmental / Earth / Ocean Sciences, Geology,
Physics, and Natural Science. Applicants are asked to show evidence of
engagement with and/or aptitude in geoscientific research.

Many of our graduates from the former MSc version of the course moved on
successfully to PhD studies in glaciology, climate science,
biogeochemistry and planetary science.

Our next Open Day is on Thursday 12th May 2016. The application round
for 2016/17 entry is open. Details of the course and application
procedure can be found at:

Director of MSc(Res) in Polar and Alpine Change
