The unique geographical location makes the UiT The Arctic University of Norway as an ideal place to study the arctic environment. Specialize in a biological field that interest you, and aquire knowledge that gives you special skills in your future work. Our general focus of research and teaching is adaptions to life at high latitudes, therein dealing with mechanisms at all levels of organization, from molecules and cells via organisms to ecosystems, in terrestrial as well as marine environments.

Several Master`s disciplines are offered which reflect the UiT The Arctic University of Norway`s unique geographic location in the high north. They provide opportunities to explore an array of fascinating questions within modern biology and emphasize some of the society`s challenges: with regard to management of natural resources and biodiversity.

Each discipline is connected to ongoing and relevant research in the different fields. They will provide the relevant theoretical background, training in state of the art laboratory and field methods as well as training of presentation and knowledge transfer proficiency.

The Master`s programme in biology offers the following disciplines:

  • Arctic animal physiology
  • Freshwater ecology
  • Marine ecology and resource biology
  • Molecular environmental biology

Amount of compulsory and elective courses will vary depending on the Master’s Discipline. The course portfolio taken by individual students will be decided upon by consultation with project supervisors. You may start on work for a 60 ECTS thesis in the second or third term, depending on your own preferences and the character of the project.

A Master’s candidate is expected to have advanced and comprehensive knowledge of biological methodology, theories, concepts and scientific approaches. The candidates who complete the programme are expected to have achieved the following learning outcomes, defined by general proficincy, knowledge and skills:

Knowledge
Students will have advanced knowledge in biology and in one of the following disciplines offered:

  • Arctic animal physiology
  • Freshwater ecology

Admission requirements

Admission to the Master`s programme in Biology requires a Bachelor`s degree (180 ECTS) or equivalent qualification.  An additional requirement is specialization in biological topics (i.e. biodiversity (zoology/botany), ecology, cell-and molecular biology, microbiology, physiology (animal/plant), biochemistry and bioinformatics) worth a minimum of 80 ECTS.

Applicants with a degree in Agricultural studies, Biomedical laboratory sciences (“Bioingeniør”), Bachelor of Pharmacy, Medicine or Dentistry does not fulfil the admission requirements.

Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent issued in Europe, Canada, USA, Australia and New Zealand: An average grade C as a minimum requirement.

Applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent issued in countries other than the above mentioned region/countries: An average grade B as a minimum requirement.

The average grade is calculated from the entire bachelor’s degree.
