The EnCHiL Programme structure

To better understand the effects of changes in nature and society at high latitudes, it is critical to identify the processes underlying these changes. The EnCHiL programme will present the student with different natural, physical, biological and social processes operating at high latitudes, and how they interact to shape arctic environments.
The EnCHiL Nordic Master program has three main entry points. Depending on your interests and approach to study environmental changes at higher latitudes one of the degree-awarding universities will offer their expertise. The specific programme path will be decided in close collaboration with the local academic coordinators at each of the EnCHiL degree-awarding universities.
EnCHiL students starting at different entry points will have different strengths in their approach to understanding changes at high latitudes. The EnChiL programme also includes joint specialized courses, both e-learning during the first semester and on campus in Iceland during the second semester, where teachers from the different partners will be involved.
All entry points have the same admission requirements.
