The International Antarctic Institute (IAI) is a consortium of universities and agencies that are involved in university-level education programs about Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. It currently involves 20 diverse institutions in 13 countries. Since its establishment as an officially-endorsed IPY project in 2006, the IAI has developed and implemented programs and activities in three key areas: courses and units of study, Masters degree programs, and field opportunities for students. IAI partner universities have also held a limited number of student and staff exchanges between universities, and there are plans to expand this part of the program in the future.
