UArctic plans future students portal
UArctic's GoNorth program hosted a special workshop for members' marketing and recruitment staff in conjunction with the Finnish International Educators Days, held in Levi May 20-23, 2013.
The expert-led workshop sessions were designed to help staff at member institutions better promote themselves to potential students through the UArctic network and promoting the North as a destination of study.
The direct outcome of the workshop is planning of a new UArctic student-focussed website, being developed through the 'Global Access to Higher Education in the North' project, funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The project is a collaboration between the GoNorth Office at the University of Tromso, the UArctic International Secretariat at the University of Lapland, and the Northern (Arctic) Federal University.
UArctic is a decentralized organization, bringing together higher educational institutions from all over the High North.
