Arctic ecosystems: Sweden

Location: Abisko Research Station in sub-arctic Sweden

You'll go to the Abisko Research Station in mid-summer, during a period of 24-hour daylight. Based on the shore of the Torneträsk Lake, 200km north of the Arctic Circle, you'll study a range of organisms - from carnivorous plants to grazing reindeer. Climate change is having a huge impact on this area, so understanding the local ecosystem and ecological processes is a key aim of this course.

Jamie Andrews, MBiolSci Biology
"It was one of the best experiences of my degree. I learned about the issues currently facing the Arctic, as well as making new friends and unforgettable memories together with them."

Meryl Varty, MBiolSci Zoology
"It was great: I made new friends and the work wasn't as intense as I'd imagined but still hard work. We got a lot of time to ourselves as well. I learnt a lot from all of the data collecting, presentations and then the final big project we carried out which has really prepared me for the level three project. I feel like I really developed my scientific skills. Having the chance either side of the course to travel was also great."
