ABOUT THE COUNTRY
Norway consistently ranks among the top nations of the world for quality of life, prosperity, security, and environmental quality. To make up for the long winter nights, Norwegians enjoy a world-class education system and high employment rates. Norway has a Scandinavian welfare model with universal health-care, subsidized higher education, and a social security system. Students studying in Norway for more than one year are insured under the health care system called The National Insurance Scheme.
Despite being a small country Norwegian universities and university colleges deliver quality education which also international exchange and degree seeking students benefit from. Studying in Norway will improve your career possibilities, both at home and abroad.
However, chances are high you might be surprised by the informal atmosphere on campus. Teachers are easily approachable, tuition often takes place in small groups and as a student you are encouraged to develop a critical mind. They believe this is the best way to prepare you for the future.
EDUCATION SYSTEM IN NORWAY
The Norwegian system of higher education comprises all the institutions and/or programs that are accredited. With the exception of some private university colleges, all higher education institutions are state-run. Since 2003 Norway has been following the objectives of the Bologna process in the European higher education. Central has been implementation of a 3 + 2 + 3 degree system with a Bachelor’s, Masters and PhD. structure following the European standards. With the introduction of the new degree system it has become easier for international students who complete all, or part of their education in Norway, to obtain recognition for their qualifications in other countries.
Receiving international students, either as a part of an exchange agreement or students seeking a full degree, is considered both an asset for the institution itself, and a tool for increasing the quality of the Norwegian institutions and education. A wide variety of courses and study programs are taught in English.
You may find a relevant program in any field of study. The list includes but is not limited to:
|Medicine, Pharmacy & Dentistry||Engineering, Computer Science, IT|
|Finance & Accounting||Social/Natural/Agrarian Studies|
|Business/Public Administration||Arts & Law|
|Economics & Tourism||International Relations|
|Philology, Sociology, Psychology||Education|
TUITION & LIVING
The Norwegian government believes education should be free to all and, as such, university students, including foreigners, are charged only a small administration fee (from USD 300 to USD 500 per year) to study. This progressive stance on education gives students access to some of the top-ranked universities in the world.
Even though the education is free in Norway, it is still a high cost country. The minimum amount for living required by Norwegian Immigration authority is around USD 15 000 per year. You will need to document having sufficient funds in order to apply for study permit in Norway.
