The master's thesis allows participants to: *base their research on fieldwork in Antarctica *be supervised by the Antarctic community within and outside of the University.

In their second year, students complete a thesis on an Antarctic-related topic, which may be based on fieldwork in Antarctica undertaken during the summer break at the end of the first year.
