Tromso university Norway

The Tromsø University

of Norway is the northernmost university of the world. Climate change, the exploitation of Arctic resources and environmental threats are topics of great public concern, and which the university takes special interest in. 12000 students study and 2700 staff work at the university. Teaching is research-based. The university’s seven faculties offer a broad range of study programmes.

The academic community in Tromsø is highly international. More than 20% of the academic staff and 10% of the student body are from abroad. The University offers more than 20 English taught master's degree programmes. The department of clinical dentistry is a relatively young section established in 2004 within the Faculty of health sciences. An innovative curriculum specially adapted to train new dentists catering to the special needs of society in Northern Norway has been developed. Evidence-based dentistry (EBD) is at the core of this curriculum.
