Re: Hello Everyone
There are two ways to get paid to go to Antarctica. As a scientist or as a support worker, mechanic, electrician, carpenter etc. Whichever route, you need to focus on getting as good qualifications as you can, that way you get to make the decisions of what you will do rather than being limited by what you can do with what you have.
Yes - study on your own too, I've never met anyone who regretted being well educated, lots who regretted not being educated enough though.
