Singular courses taught in English at UiT

UiT The Arctic University of Norway offers a broad range of single courses for exchange students, placement/traineeship students and students intending to do project work/internships or write their master's thesis.

You may choose courses across faculties, but please note:

  • you must fulfill the prerequisites for each course
  • you can select courses in one city
  • you can choose courses at different faculties/instituties, but make sure that they are all taught in one city.
  • You are not guaranteed entry to the courses you select. It is the faculty/institute that have the final say in whether you get admission to a course.

Please make sure to select "semester" in the top search menu of the Course Catalogue before choosing courses:

How to choose courses

Applicants who have studied Norwegian full time for at least one year and have achieved level II (Trinn 2/B1) may apply for Norwegian language course Trinn 3 (B2/C1) taught at campus Tromsø. Course codes: NOR-0035 and NOR-0036.

The course gives 20 ECTS, which is not a full-time study. Applicants must therefore choose an additional course offered by the same faculty, e.g., a course within history, political science or related to Arctic issues corresponding to 10 ECTS.

The students will need to document their level of Norwegian language proficiency in one of the following ways:

Documented level of Norwegian equivalent to level II. Accepted documentation of level of knowledge is:

  • Level II (Trinn 2/B1) examination in Norwegian for foreign students at Norwegian universities

  • Documentation of other proof of Norwegian language skills on a similar level (Trinn 2/B1)

Final decision about admission to the Norwegian language course will be made after an interview of the applicant.
