Why Study in Norway?

With a wide range of high quality courses and great flexibility, Norwegian institutions prove to be an ideal study destination for international students. Internationalisation is a high priority within all sectors of the Norwegian education system. Currently more than 170 Masters programmes taught in English are available to international students, covering many different subject areas.

Norway is one of the leading countries conforming to the guidelines from the Bologna Process in European higher education. By adapting to the European standard in higher education, it is easy for students at Norwegian institutions to obtain recognition of their qualifications in other countries.

Norwegian universities and state university colleges as a rule do not charge tuition fees for international students. However, you should take into consideration that living expenses in Norway are higher than in many other countries. However, you could be eligible for financial support to contribute towards your living expenses. Through various fellowship programmes, scholarship schemes or student loans, international students can receive funding for a full degree or a limited number of semesters.

Norwegian institutions of higher education welcome applications from qualified students from around the world. Nearly 10,000 foreign nationals are currently enrolled at this level of Norway’s educational system. International students may apply for admissions to a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes. Some universities and colleges offer specifically designed programmes for foreign students. These programmes are taught in English and admission does not require permanent residency.

International students are defined as all students without a permanent residence permit in Norway. There are three categories of international student:

  • self-financing degree students
  • exchange students
  • students participating in various fellowship programmes.

Eligibility for exchange and fellowship programmes is usually determined on the basis of national and regional bilateral agreements and fulfilment of quota requirements. Participation in a number of the funding programmes is restricted to applicants from specific countries.
