Thesis & Defense

Regulations for the PhD program at the faculty of Science and Technology can be found here (english and norwegian). The faculty has a lot of information related to the thesis and defense (norwegian | english).

Submitting your thesis

The faculty of Science and Technology has a web page in english with extensive information on the submission of a PhD thesis.

Printing your thesis (only relevant after approval of the thesis)

UiT has an agreement with Skipnes kommunikasjon to print the PhD thesis. The final version of the thesis can be submitted through the website (norwegian | english) of Skipnes. You will need the following to fulfill the procedure:

  1. Login name and password. Ask the coordinator of the PhD school (contact) or Renate Larsen.
  2. PDF version of your thesis without the front page. You can also upload a version including the front page and write a comment that this should be removed in the printed version.
  3. ISBN number for the printed version of your thesis. You will get this from the faculty in the letter stating that your thesis has been approved.
  4. A rekvisisjonsnummer to bill UiT for the printing. Ask Renate Larsen or Frederick Leeson. This will take at least one day to generate.

Some advice to make sure you get the best result without unnecessary delay: make sure your PDF file includes blank pages in such a way that new chapters start on the right-hand page and write a comment to explain how you want this. You can also ask Skipnes to remove headers and footers if you want (for example “this article has been downloaded from …”). You can order a trial copy, which will usually come within a week from online submission of the PDF file to Skipnes.
