STUDY IN NORWAY ADMISSION PROCESS
The admission process in Norwegian universities varies from one to the other. So young people interested in enrolling in any of them should contact the chosen institution directly to obtain information. The deadlines for applications are usually from December 1 to March 15 for courses that start in August. But some universities have different deadlines because they perform additional tests.
The minimum requirements demanded by the Norwegian Agency for the Guarantee of Quality in Education (NOKUT) to access a degree program are:
- Have completed advanced level secondary education. This is equivalent to passing the final exam of the Norwegian high school.
- In some cases, depending on the country of origin, it is required to have completed at least one year of university.
You can check the specific requirements for the citizens of your country on the NOKUT website. Have to keep in mind that these are the minimum requirements at the national level, then each university can establish their own. So it is advisable that you contact directly with the institution in which you wish to study.
In the case of master’s degrees, the admission requirements are decided by each university institution but, as a general rule, it is necessary to have obtained a degree, which is equivalent to a university degree of a minimum duration of three years.
On the web Study in Norway, you can find a catalog with all the degrees offered by the Norwegian universities and the data on admission.
