International Summer School (ISS)
From Saturday 23 June 2018
To Friday 03 August 2018
Location Oslo, Norway

ISS_A-Changing-Arctic_Flyer_2018v2.pngThe International Summer School at the University of Oslo ( is pleased to offer a 6-week Masters level course, "A Changing Arctic." The highly interdisciplinary course consists of a series of lectures, both by UiO staff and external guests, covering a wealth of issues related to the Arctic domain as well as excursions and public outreach.

This course aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of the Arctic natural habitat, including its changes over time and plausible future trajectories, and to increase awareness about how those changes affect legal developments, political tensions, and international governance challenges. Students will learn about the uncertainties in scientific data and models and will be trained in the use of analytical tools and models that help to describe and diagnose governance challenges and to identify and assess response options. The course also provides understanding of international law rules governing the Arctic region, with particular focus on the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

This year the school will be held from June 23-August 3 at the Blindern Campus in Oslo. The course includes a final examination and group and individual presentations, worth 15 ECTS (Credits).

Scholarship applications close by 1 February.
Self-financed applications close by 1 March.
