organisation profile

The University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) is the world’s northernmost higher education institution, located in Longyear at 78º N. UNIS offers high quality courses at the undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate level in Arctic Biology, Arctic Geology, Arctic Geophysics and Arctic Technology.

Background
UNIS was established in 1993 to provide university level education in Arctic studies, to carry out high quality research, and to contribute to the development of Svalbard as an international research platform. UNIS’ geographical position gives it a unique advantage, enabling students and faculty to use nature as a laboratory, arena for observation and data collection.

UNIS is a share-holding company, owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. The four traditional Norwegian universities; Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Tromsø, are represented on our Board of Directors. Thus, UNIS works closely with the mainland universities and the UNIS courses are intended to complement the teaching given by the mainland universities.
