UArctic builds and strengthens collective resources and collaborative infrastructure that enables member institutions to better serve their constituents and their regions. Through cooperation in education, research and outreach we enhance human capacity in the North, promote viable communities and sustainable economies, and forge global partnerships.


UArctic's member institutions are the leading experts in circumpolar education, and offer many programs and courses on a wide variety of northern-related topics. Browse the UArctic Study Catalogue for educational opportunities that are right for you.

Students at participating institutions in the north2north Student Mobility program can apply for an exchange grant to another partner university.
