IMPORTANT: The ministry of higher education has proposed that all new students from outside the EU will have to pay the actual cost of studying in Norway after August 2023. If this is approved by Parliament, the semester fees will rise from about NOK 7,000 to NOK 49,000 for this group. Students who have worked full time 2 years or studied full time 3 years in Norway, are regarded as EU-students. We will come back with more information when the matter has been decided by Parliament around Christmas.
To provide a last opportunity for students outside the EU to study in Norway with the present tuition fee of NOK 7,100 (+ DTL fee and SIO fee, more information below) we have decided to offer an extra admission for the Spring semester of 2023! Students who start in January will be guaranteed the low tuition fee rate during their entire bachelor programme.
Studies will start January 9 and proceed according to the ordinary bachelor programme but with the sequence of subjects altered.
In order to be eligible to apply for the extra admission, you must already be living in Norway and be able to present your qualifications promptly (see more information below). The application must be submitted before December 15 2022 to come into consideration. Applications after December 15 will only be considered if there still are available places. The links for the application are found below:
