The program is offered by the University of Greenland, Aarhus University, and Greenland Institute of Natural Resources in autumn 2016 in Nuuk, and hosted by University of Greenland as well as the Greenland institute of Natural Resources.

In order to facilitate the incorporation of the students in a master program the institutions offer a full semester of minimum 30 ECTS. This way the student will not have to supplement with courses at their home university in order to fulfil the 30 ECTS demand for a semester. The program suggested here will also provide the option of choosing between different courses.
