PhD courses

11 national PhD-level courses are initially planned for BioCat, open to all students and arranged biannually (see list to the left).

“What’s up”  will give you an overview of all available courses/workshops, both scientifically and within transferable skills.

In addition,  High North Academy (HNA)  provides training in scientific writing, presentation techniques, film making, leadership etc.

The courses will typically be given as intensive courses lasting for 1-3 weeks and will in some cases demand some individual time spent on reading and/or writing reports. The intensive nature of those courses facilitates students to travel to the site of the course for a given period of time learning methods and techniques available at the other universities.

Note ! External PhD students must apply for guest status at the host university ( the site of the course), forms available here:
PhD guest student at UiO
PhD guest student at UiT
Remember to add a confirmation of uptake to a PhD program from your home institution.

Fronter will be used as a common platform for most courses presented by BioCat.
