About the University

UiT The Arctic University of Norway is the third largest in Norway and the northernmost university of the world. Its location on the edge of the Arctic implies a mission. The Arctic is of increasing global importance. Climate change, the exploitation of Arctic resources and environmental threats are topics of great public concern, and which the University of Tromsø takes special interest in. At UiT The Arctic University of Norway you can explore global issues from a close-up perspective.

About the Location

Surrounded by mountains and fjords on all sides, Tromsø is home to approximately 75,000 inhabitants, making it the second-most populated city north of the Arctic Circle. With everything a person could “need”—shopping malls, festivals, marathons, cultural venues, tourist attractions and a few movie theaters — Tromsø feels more like a small metropolitan city than a town.
