How do I register an application?
Applications for our spring semester can be registered in our local admission system. The local application system for the spring semester 2019 opens on October 1st, 2018.
When do I need to apply?
Applicants who need to apply for a residence permit in order to attend the programme, must register their application for the Spring semester of 2019 within November 1st, 2018.
Applicants with EU/EEA citizenship or who already have a valid residence permit may apply for the programme (Spring semester 2019) until December 31st, 2018. The permit must be valid for the semester for which you wish to apply.
What kind of documentation do I need?
All documentation is uploaded to your application. The general requirement for studying on a higher level in Norway is called Higher Education Entrance Qualification. The exact requirements vary from each country but is usually comprised of the applicant’s high school education, one or two years of university studies and sufficient proficiency in English.
The requirements for your country can be found on the home page for the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT). Applicants from countries where a high school diploma doesn’t cover the requirements for English proficiency must upload test results from an international English test, such as TOEFL, IELTS etc. English on Norwegian high school level will also meet the requirement.
If you’re an EU/EEA citizen or have a valid residence permit and are applying between November 1st-December 31st, you must also upload documentation proving your citizenship or residence permit.
When can I expect a reply?
The standard processing period for applications in our local admission system is three weeks. Once your application is registered, a case officer will be in touch with you per e-mail informing you of your time limit for uploading relevant documentation. If all relevant documentation is already uploaded to your application, the case officer will proceed with the administrative procedure.
When your application has been processed, a letter with offer of admission or rejection will be generated and uploaded to your application. Note: To access this letter, you must log in to your application. The letter is not sent by e-mail. If you are admitted, you must confirm that you accept your offer within the listed time limit.
