How to apply:

Email  to receive the link for online application. Attach a motivational letter where you write why you want to take the course and how it is relevant for your ongoing education. 

If you are a doctoral student, you also need to send a certificate that your costs for the course are covered by your home division.

Who can apply:

The course is open to program students at KTH and for students at UIUC (course is taught by faculty members from both universities). KTH students need to have general entry requirements and 120 hp in one of the following fields: technology, natural science, architecture, history, environmental history, history of ideas, economic history, political science, anthropology, sociology, ethnology, literature, archaeology, human geography.

Doctoral students at KTH can also take the course, but need to cover the whole cost for the field work.

If you are a non EU student you need to make sure that the course is a part of your study plan or eISP, otherwise there is a risk that you need pay a course fee. Please turn to your coordinator or supervisor to clear this.


Field based education in the high Arctic is not cheap. The course will fund most of the costs for undergraduate students, except for 4 000 SEK each. We advice students to apply for travel stipends to cover this cost.

Doctoral students need to pay the full field cost of 23 000 SEK per person
