Scott Polar Research Institute
The Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) is a well-known and long-established centre for research in both polar regions. It is part of the University of Cambridge. SPRI has several research groups investigating a range of issues in both the environmental sciences and social sciences of relevance to the Arctic and Antarctica.

Our polar library, which includes the Shackleton Memorial Library, has comprehensive holdings of scholarly books and journals on polar research, with exceptional archival collections from the exploration of the Antarctic and Arctic. Around 60 academic, library and support staff, together with postgraduate students, associates and fellows attached to our research programmes, are working in the Institute, providing a strong core of intellectual activity focused on the Arctic and Antarctic and their adjacent seas.
Cambridge offers two Graduate Degree courses; a one-year Master’s Degree (M.Phil.) course in Polar Studies, and a three-year Doctoral Degree course. Both courses are closely tied to the research activities of the Institute. The Institute also hosts the Secretariats of the International Glaciological Society and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research.
