Arctic Science Study Programme (ASSP)

The Arctic Science Study Programme (ASSP) courses offered in Nuuk give your education an Arctic angle and provide you with first-hand experience of working in and with the climate, environment and communities of the Arctic. 

Nuuk is a unique location for education in Arctic topics as it is situated inside a large fjord system with glaciers, rivers, lakes and different terrestrial and marine biotopes. Nuuk is also the capital of Greenland and home to the government of Greenland, departments for natural resource management and consulting, as well as the authorities in charge of monitoring and regulating industrial and subsistence fisheries and hunting.
