Please, read everything that I have linked, all the information should be there, if you still need help contact them here: http://www.uio.no/english/studies/contact/international-student-reception.html

Thanks for your info.Please i need ur assistance also.I want to do a Bachelors programme in Marine Engr or nautical science...Please link me to schools doing them in english.And i want to knw if Norwegian universities are still tuition free?
Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by StarFlux: 10:11pm On Jan 21, 2013
Yes, they are tuition free. You do however need to pay 8000-16000 naira per semester.

Give me a couple of minutes and I will find some universities for you.
The main problem with taking a bachelor in Norway is that they often require you to speak Norwegian, that normally doesn't apply to Master programmes.

http://www.ntnu.edu/ (only offers master in Marine Engineering & Nautical science in English, but does offer Bachelor if you can speak Norwegian).

Bachelor in Nautical science: http://www.hials.no/eng/hials/education/bachelor_programmes/nautical_studies
Bachelor ship design: http://www.hials.no/eng/hials/education/bachelor_programmes/ship_design

So you mostly have to go through Høgskolen i Ålesund (university of Ålesund) if you want it in English. That's all I could find for now. But you can do a 6 month course in Norwegian and you have a lot more possibilities.
Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by achu442(m): 12:43am On Jan 22, 2013

Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by StarFlux: 3:05am On Jan 22, 2013
"All universities/schools in Norway are tuition free, apart from the private owned ones, which I will not link here. The only thing you need to pay is a semester fee, which varies from 8000-16000 Naira every 6 months.

Yes, I am on facebook. Send me a PM and we can sort it out. I highly recommend NTNU, it is one of the best universities in Norway, and I am starting there myself this august.

Here you can take a look at the different Norwegian courses: http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/international/norsk_kurs/norwegian_as_2nd_app.php
(I recommend 10 month the most). If you are dedicated, you will manage to get a good grasp of the language. Taking one of these courses fufills the Norwegian language admission requirements, so you can apply for your bachelor.

[b]Note of importance: to apply for the IFUS program, you will have to wait until october. IFUS is basically language course and then straight to your bachelor at the same university. Semester course is not guaranteed admission to your prefered programme (which IFUS guarantees). But if you want to study now, the semester course MIGHT be the better choice for you. But if you want the semester course at NTNU, (as far as I know) you will need a Norwegian ID card first to apply. That is a lot of hassle, so I recommend that you take it elsewhere, but that means you won't be at NTNU the whole time. Alternatively, you don't even have to attend a university to learn the language, but you will need to take a language proficiency test when applying, so you need a course regardless, but that could be anywhere. Plus, if you are an exchange student, you can take the semester course VERY EASILY, but you need to be an exchange student.

Overall, I do recommend that you take the bachelor at Høgskolen i Ålesund or apply for IFUS in october, because it will be much easier for you. Forget that I recommended the semester course, unless you are an exchange student. Master you can take anywhere beucase they are offered in English.[/b]

Thought I do know certain universities gives you an additional year, where you learn the language before attending your bachelor (different from IFUS). So far, I don't know if NTNU offers this. I will see if I can find out more.

Full list of Universities in Norway: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_universities_in_Norway

(The English versions are not as detailed, so don't be put off if it doesn't look very profressional!)

There are more of these international relations (for the most part called "international studies" or "internasjonale studier" in Norwegian), but I have to find them manually. OK, there are quite a few that are not available to international students. UiO does not offer the course to international students, sadly. There are many master's degrees in international studies that you can apply for, but since you need a bachelor, that's not an option. I'm sorry if the results are dissapointing. But this is what I found after over an hour of searching. (It's late now, but I will look for more when I wake up).

What is important to note is that some universities, such as NTNU, allow you to apply for the regular bachelor programmes as long as you can prove your proficiency, while some universities don't. That is why I will do some more research to find out which universities allows for this. Though for now, it seems like your only hope is HiL.

As with Achu442 here, you will most likely need a course in Norwegian for most of these bachelors.

As always, if anyhting is unclear, let me know and I will try to resolve the issue. And I want to undermine that I do not know much about the language courses, please send the universities an e-mail where you can ask questions about the courses they offer and the easiest way possible to complete one, because it might be easier than explained above.

Bear with me as I try to find the easiest way for you to complete a course.

Update: So far, it seems like most universities should be able to offer than one extra year when you have applied for a bachelor that requires proficiency in Norwegian.

Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by StarFlux: 2:22am On Jan 24, 2013
Bachelor or master?

What will you need?

1. Student visa. To apply for a student visa you need sufficient funds (around 2-2,5 million naira) to cover the cost of a year's study. In other words, for your visa to be granted, you need to have this money. You do not however, need to use it. Also, jobs are available, so eventually you will be able to cover all your costs that way.

2. If bachelor, you will need a Norwegian language course (+1 year).

3. Other fees. The ONLY fee that you will ever pay, is the semester fee which is 8000-16000 naira.

If this is Ok with you, what course are you looking for so I can find schools for you?

(Going offline for now, will reply when I wake).

I intend to study economics, and is there an entrance examination to the university before getting admission?
Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by StarFlux: 2:48am On Jan 24, 2013
No there is no entrance examamination. I failed to mention that (depending on course) you might need a TOEFL test to show to. But that's it mostly.

What kind of medicine, just general medicine profession study? If so, I'm not sure if it's offered to international students. I'll have to find out.
I think you can already apply actually, the deadline is december 1st. The only school fee is semester fee which is 8000-16000 naira, and that's it.

THERE IS NO TUITION FEE IN NORWEGIAN UNIVERSITIES (EXCEPT FROM THE PRIVATE OWNED ONES, WHICH I WILL NOT MENTION IN THIS THREAD.

The only thing you need to worry about is the required fund to apply for a student visa. You need around 2-2,5million naira to apply for it. The money IS NOT A PAYMENT, the money will go straight to your Norwegian bank account after accepted visa.

Here's examples of a master's programme in psychology:

Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by StarFlux: 5:02pm On Jan 27, 2013
Unfortunately, it seems like the profession study (6 years) is not available to international students, unless you already have resident permit. It also requires profiency in the Norwegian language. What you can do is apply for a Norwegian language course, which will grant you this permit, and after that you can apply for the medicine study. The only problem with this is that now you have no guarantee whatsoever, for actually gaining admission into the programme.

Unfortunate news, I know sad You can apply in other countries, but the problem then will be tuition fees.
Re: Has Anyone Applied To Any Norwegian University For Since Application Started? by lola009: 11:16am On Jan 28, 2013
Thanks Starflux for the info. NTNU, however does not offer any courses in Psychology. I sent you an email in regards to that. I guess the courses for masters degree are offered in English yea? I appreciate your kindness. God bless.
