What are the next steps if I’m admitted?
If you have been accepted at FIUC, the following steps describe your way forward:
- You must accept your offer within the time limit mentioned on your admission letter. You can register “Yes” or “No” by logging in to your application.
- If you need to apply for a residence permit to study at FIUC, you must contact the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI). More information regarding residence permit and deposit account can be found here. Please note: Admission doesn’t guarantee that your visa application will be granted. Should your application for a residence permit be denied, please contact FIUC and inform us that you will not be able to attend the course.
- Applicants from outside EU/EEA may need to make a monetary deposit to a designated deposit account. For more information, see here.
- Once you’ve accepted the offer and your student data is registered at FIUC, you will receive information on how to complete your semester registration in our Studentweb system. The registration includes both signing up for classes and paying the required fees. Students at FIUC generate their own invoice in Studentweb. Failure to complete the semester registration within the September 1st will result in revocation of your student right.
What do I do if I’m waitlisted?
Both our one-year and three-year programmes can only admit a certain number of students. If there are more applicants than vacancies, the applicants will be listed based on their scores from the provided documents. The students with the best scores will receive an admission, while the others will be placed on a waiting list.
If you are placed on a waiting list, you can either forfeit your place on the list, or wait and see if you are accepted at a later point. All applicants on the waiting list who get accepted at a later point will be notified.
