How to apply
Norwegians apply for university or college places via the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service (NUCAS). Foreign students apply directly to the university or college offering their preferred course of study. More information about how foreign students can apply for a course of study is available on the Studyinnorway.no website.
Digital school report
Students who completed their upper secondary education at a Norwegian school in the year 2000 or later, can get a digital copy of their school report from the National School Report Database (NVB).
Student loans and grants
You can apply for a student loan or grant from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen), if you attend a state approved college or university.
If you lack the necessary educational qualifications to get into a Norwegian university or college, you may still be admitted based on your work experience and skills.
Enrolment after main offer round
Each year, after the main round of offers has been completed, several study places remain unfilled at colleges and universities around Norway. It is possible to apply for a place on courses that have unfilled study places.
