Registration for courses

Because the PhD Programme in Nautical Operations is a joint effort between UiT, NTNU, HVL and USN, all its PhD students are registered in the student systems (FS) of all four cooperating institutions. Thereby, our PhD students can be considered as internal applicants to all of the PhD courses offered by UiT, USN, HVL and NTNU. Our PhD students are therefore able to register for such PhD courses through the Studentwebs  of the respective institutions. Monitor the pages of the PhD courses of interest for application deadlines. 

Check the Programme's course catalogue here

If you wish to register for PhD courses offered at other higher education institutions in Norway or abroad, you need to carefully follow the relevant course pages with instructions and deadlines for external applicants.
