What is HNA:
HNA is funded by UiT The Arctic University of Norway and organise courses that are intensive, not field specific and participants use their own data and results as far as possible. All teaching goes in English, at UiT Campus Tromsø.

Why take HNA courses:
HNA courses should not be viewed upon as extra work, but as something that gets you started. Skills obtained are transferable and applicable to many aspects in life, and your CV is boosted too!

Who can participate:
PhD candidates from all faculties at UiT, regardless of scientific background. PhDs outside UiT, Post Docs and others may participate if there are available seats. See how to register below.

When should I participate:
Some courses are handy early in your PhD, whereas others are more useful after the PhD. Here is a suggestion of when you should participate in which course:
