The UArctic Field School Calendar is maintained in partnership with APECS, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists, who maintain a parallel listing.

Listed courses typically include some kind of field component (field training, field work, excursions) which defines the course as a field school. To submit a course to the UArctic Field School Calendar, or if you have questions related to arranging field schools, please contact
