What is HNA:
HNA organise courses that are intensive, not field specific and participants use their own data and results as far as possible. The skills obtained are transferable, and could thus be useful inside as well as outside academia. All teaching goes in English, at UiT Tromsø.

Why take HNA courses:
HNA courses should not be viewed upon as extra work, but as something that get you started. Skills obtained are  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:
