To strengthen relations regarding education and research in Arctic subjects, Bergen University College and UNIS have signed a cooperation agreement on 14 January 2016.
15 January 2016
UNIS is open to students from Norwegian university colleges subject to regular application and qualification criteria. The aim of the agreement with Bergen University College (HiB) is to promote UNIS as an education arena for students from HiB who want specialization in relevant Arctic subjects.
Bergen University College has about 7,700 students and three faculties; Education; Engineering and Business Administration and Health and Social Sciences with a broad range of Bachelor and Master programmes.
Especially courses within Arctic Technology at UNIS will be relevant for students at HiB. The agreement also ensures that HiB, like the Norwegian universities, will have a say in the approval of UNIS courses, and will be invited to take part in the annual Dean meetings with UNIS and the Norwegian universities.
