# PhD courses (8000 courses) at the Faculty of Science and Technology

**Signing up for PhD courses at the Faculty of Science and Technology**

PhD students at UiT The Arctic University of Norway sign up for 8000 courses through StudentWeb. You will find information about how to register for the semester and sign up for courses here. You are not guaranteed enrollment to courses with restricted admission. If you have applied for admission to a restricted course you will be informed if you got admission or not after the deadline.

PhD students from other universities, applicants with a master’s degree or equivalent, or participants in the Associate Professor Programme must apply for admission to 8000 courses through SøknadsWeb.

**External**** students must document their basis for admission**

External students must remember to upload certified documentation of education, and if relevant, documentation of their status as a PhD student to SøknadsWeb. Confirmation of student status should be from your home University's student administration. Confirmation from your supervisor or copy of award letter is not considered as valid documentation.

**Who**** can apply for admission to the 8000 courses **The following students may apply for the 8000 courses, in order of priority:

- PhD students and research fellows at a PhD student research program at the University of Tromsø
- Participants in the Associate Professor Program
- PhD students and students at a PhD student research program at other universities
- People who have a minimum master's degree or equivalent, but are not admitted to a PhD program.

If there are more applicants than available places, students will be given priority from the category 1 to 4. Please note that some courses may have additional admission requirements and / or priority keys. This would then be stated in the course description for each course.

**Special Curriculum**

Special curriculums are approved by the head of Department at the Department responible for the course. When the application has been approved, you can send the form to hilde.beate.amundsen@uit.no

You will then be signed up for the course.

Application form for special curriculum (in Norwegian only)

**Transcript of record**Transcripts can be ordered via the StudentWeb. The transcript will be sent by mail to your registered term address. Make sure to check/update your semester address before ordering the transcript
