The Arctic Semester takes place at the DTU Campus in Sisimiut, located 50 km north of the Arctic Circle. Sisimiut is ideally situated for experiencing the Arctic. Although Greenland’s second largest city, it’s a small city so you can easily get around. On the other hand, it’s a self-sustained city, with all the facilities you need to visit in order to understand the running of an Arctic city.

You can take the Arctic Semester as part of a Master Degree in Civil Engineering at DTU, and you can also take the semester as an exchange semester or individual courses as an Open University student.

Deadline for European Students is November 1.
Deadline for Non-European Students is October 15.
