The application portal is now open. To apply go to the Application portal(Søknadsweb). 

PLEASE NOTE THAT, because we're away during Easter and back only 2nd of April, THE APPLICATION DEADLINE has been extended to the end of the 3RD OF APRIL. We are aware that the document linked at the top of this page still sets the deadline to the 2nd of April. If you try to apply through the portal 3rd April, you may experience a problem. Don't fret, we'll sort it out 2nd and 3rd of April. 

Many people have already submitted their applications; and the course, which will only accommodate ≈40 participants, may well become overbooked soon. 

Four important points: 

1. If the portal page is in Norwegian (we appologize for this); change the language to engish to the right at the top of the page before you proceed. 

2. If you are an international applicant please follow the simple instructions on how to apply below (click on the grey field).

3. Remember to upload relevant documents before the application deadline 4th of April. You can do this when you apply but also after you have submitted your application. If so, log in to the application portal (søknadsweb) again and click on my documents at the top of the page.Then add the relevant documents. 

4. When you apply, you have to choose between CISMAC900-5 Intervention Science in maternal and child health (5ECT) and CISMAC900A-5 Intervention Science in maternal and child health (2ECT). This is correct. They are both this course. The difference between them is that one (5ECTs) has an exam after the course and the other (2ECTs) does not.
