Elective courses

Several elective courses for each scientific field are available. Please find a list of relevant courses at uia.no and in the template for the project description.

General requirements

15 ECTS are normally to be technical courses.

20 ECTS are normally to be taken at UiA.

Specialised PhD courses at other universities or university colleges may be included as electives in the coursework component. Relevant PhD courses may be found for example at Aalborg University, University of South-Eastern Norway or different data bases for PhD courses, like phdcourses.dk.

Up to 10 credits of the elective courses may be taken as national or international research schools and courses, or like special syllabus in the form of literature, or as methodological studies which are relevant to the research programme.
