Opportunities and Challenges in the Polar Regions is a short 3 day international course designed to give an intensive and expert insight into the polar regions and the challenges they face.

The polar regions are altering very rapidly as a result of climate change and human development. People working in a wide range of business sectors need to understand what is happening, and decide how they and their organisations can best adapt and operate in these cold and remote environments. This course will give the information and answers professionals need, and provide new perspectives and insights into what is happening today in the Arctic and Antartica.

This unique course has been developed and organised by the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and the University of Cambridge's Institute of Continuing Education (ICE).

The cost to attend the course is £2,995 per person, with an early registration discount fee of £2,250 per person for bookings made before 1 December 2016


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
