The Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), part of the University of Cambridge, is a long-established centre for research into both polar regions. Its research groups investigate a range of issues in both the environmental sciences and social sciences of relevance to the Arctic and Antarctica. Its polar library has comprehensive holdings of scholarly books and journals on polar research, with exceptional archival collections from the exploration of the Antarctic and Arctic, along with extensive online resources, including bibliographic and other information.

The institute's academic, library and support staff, together with postgraduate students, associates and fellows attached to our research programmes provide a strong core of intellectual activity focused on the Arctic and Antarctic and their adjacent seas. We offer two Graduate Degree courses; a one-year master's Degree (m.Phil.) course in Polar Studies, and a three-year Doctoral Degree course, leading to a Ph.D. degree. Both courses are closely tied to the research activities of the institute.
