English taught courses

At the present day, NArFU facilitates an adjusting work in accordance with the Bologna process, meaning a transition towards multi-level educational system. It includes a variety of 4-year bachelor and 2-year master’s programmes offered throughout the institutes of NArFU.

Each study programme offers specifically-elaborated study plan, though besides of obligatory courses (subject to the fulfillment of norms), students may take optional courses, several of them with the English language of instruction.

Participating in multilateral projects of the Barents Cross-Border University, and within the frameworks of the joint international programs, more courses became available in a variety of research areas: comparative social work, environmental engineering, health and wellbeing in the Circumpolar area, Software Systems and Services Development in the Global Environment, to name a few.
