Selection Program Structure
UiT has established an in-house holistic selection process for the ab-initio selection, not only effective in identifying a suitable candidate for the airline pilot training, but also those who will be able to succeed in the challenge of captaincy with minimal extra training and perform to a safe and effective standard as well as the ability to flourish in an academic environment.
The selection has 4 Phases:
Student application and self-declaration - Online
VTS online test battery - Online - 49 minutes
Personality Profile - Online - 35 minutes
VTS Safety Assessment - In-house - 160 minutes
UiT Structured Interview - In-house - 45- 60 minutes Session based on the Five Factor Model (FFM), using a competency-based interview approach.
The Initial phase ( Phase 1 ) is conducted as per the Norwegian Universities standard procedure via Samordna optak . The deadlines are twice a year, in 1st of September (Autumn Selection) and in 1st of March (Spring Selection).
Candidates that fulfilled the basic criteria, receive an online link via e-mail (in April for spring selection and in October in Autumn selection) ( Phase 2 ), a psychological-diagnostic package for the selection of candidates. The online test takes about 50 minutes to complete and based on the test results, sixty successful candidates are invited to the selection at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) in Tromsø.
We have a testing week (for Phase 3 and 4) at the UiT and you will be allocated a day during the selection week for your testing session.
The Phase 3 and Phase 4 are conducted in one day during a selection day at the UiT. During the selection day we will measure core abilities related to flying performance that shown to consistently predict pilot training performance. The testing battery takes 160 minutes and comprises of different types of tests. For example, we measure reactive stress tolerance and ability to react under complex stimulus conditions, logical reasoning and long-term focused attention etc.
In the last Phase 4, the evaluation is based on a structured interview, using questions to assess a candidate against specific competence areas. This usually takes 45 - 60 minutes in front of a panel of 2-3 interviewers.
The successful and the unsuccessful candidates will be notified within 10 days after the selection is completed.
The In-house testing is conducted at the Selection LAB at the UiT.
