Studying in Norway

The Norwegian higher education sector is known for its high academic standards, innovative teaching methods and close, informal relations between students and lecturers.

It is possible to study interesting combinations of subjects at Norwegian universities and university colleges, and a wide range of courses and programmes is available in English for international students.

In addition, student life at most higher education institutions is very dynamic, and there are a range of social activities on offer.

International students give many reasons as to why they like studying in Norway: the safe, peaceful, and technologically advanced society; the magnificent scenery; the opportunity to take part in a variety of outdoor sports and activities – summer and winter; and the fact that studying in Norway will enhance their career opportunities, both in Norway and in other countries.

How do I apply?

You can do part of your degree in Norway through one of the established exchange programmes or agreements between institutions, or you can come to Norway to follow an entire Bachelors or Masters degree course.
