@ Ezma, pls i don't undestand what you mean by 86% CGPA.

Our GP is usually over 5.

Starting from 3.5 is second class upper. 4.5 is 1st class.

So what do you mean by 86%?
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Ezegozie(m): 12:58am On May 15, 2013
4rm my Knowledge in Maths, 86% CGPA of maximum of 5 is 4.3.

Please do you mean that a CGPA of 4.3 will only be considered for second round?

Apart from CGPA, is there anything one can do to stand a better chance of getting admission there.

And i think the toughness of admission should depend on the course in question, and the number of people seeking for the course.

From the look of things, i may graduate with CGPA of between 3.5--3.8 by God's grace.
So does it mean i cant secure admission there?

The only way you would get in is when people with better CGPA don't apply this year. And believe me many people are looking for a way to get around cost of graduate school and Norway is a highly preferred destination. Preliminary application is free, So you should still go ahead and apply anyway.

@ezme, maybe i will apply in many universities and in each university, i will about 8 courses.
e.g i may chose Uni of stavanger and put about 4 courses of my choice and also
Univ of Bergen and chose another 4 courses ...
I will apply in about 8 universities.

And out of the 8 universities, one may offer me admission in any of the courses.

And is 2.1 all that easy to get?
Why are they so many people with second class upper holders? (LOL)

they say if i have work experience, i should include it. Do they also mean I can include my experience in I.T?

And i am a 3rd yr student, so i am not applying this year, just want to have some idea.
are you a student in Norway

I don't know if there is a limit to number of courses you could apply for in a particular School. What you also have to understand is that not all courses are available in English. And most of the courses available are not the popular ones you hear of.

Jaga Jaga: @ihuoma85 i noticed from your posts that you reside in Norway. I'll like to know the city you stay in and the percentage of Nigerians in Norway. Were u born in Norway and are u married to a Nigerian (if yes did you both meet in Norway). I'll also like to know if there are decent single Nigerian females in Norway. Lastly, what kind of jobs do Nigerians do in Norway.
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Ezegozie(m): 9:00pm On May 15, 2013
Jaga Jaga: @olibyno when were you admitted and what course were you admitted to. Your GPA must have been very high for you to get admission there.
Why don't you try finnish schools as they only need you to show a sum of about 1.2 mil in your Naija account.

@Jaga Jaga, i gues, these were your posts when you were desperately in need of information. Now you are admitted you are keeping quiet over my questions.

Anyway, i won't blame you. But all i know is My God will always answer me even if you keep quiet....
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Ezegozie(m): 9:04pm On May 15, 2013
@ Ezme, thank You so much for your responses. I think Nigeria need people like you to move forward, not some selfish individual that will like others to help them, and refuse to help others after they are helped.

Thanks so much

thanks for the compliment but I don't think you should be confrontational if people don't respond to your request on time. Someone who can would always do so in due time. Also try as much as possible to find out information on your own. With persistence you would see what you are looking for. Cheers!!!

Bros no vex ooh, I hardly come to the travel section again (I only come to give back to a forum that has helped me a lot). If I never wanted to help I wouldn't have responded to the first question you asked.

Admission really depends on the quality of applicants. For your course, petroleum geology, there are a lot of quality applicants every year. But i still believe that you can get admitted by including your I.T experience, a good recommendation letter from your professor and last but not the least prayers (this should even come first). A friend over here told me of his friend with a 1st class that wasn't admitted to offshore technology (subsea).

I will give you one secret: If you are hell bent on coming to Norway, you can take a risk and apply for the master program in environmental technology (offshore) because they have less applicants here compared to petroleum geology. When you come here, you can likely switch to petroleum geology if some students that were initially admitted to the geology program fail to come for whatever reasons.

thanks, but also try hard not to kill somebody's hope.

Telling somebody that 86% Gp is required for second admission process is highly debilitating..

Without even mentioning the school's name or even the course which the high GP is required.

Please we all should be encouraging our coleages not discouraging them with unspecific and vague information

Ezegozie: Jaga Jaga, pls i would like you to help me.

I am a 3rd yr student of unizik (geology) and would like to do my Msc in petroleum geoscience enginering @ university of stavanger after graduating.
Is it possible to work and study @ the same time to supplement your stay in Norway?
Is it possible to get work there (in Norway) after finishing your Msc?
What advice do you have to give a poor student wanting to study in Noray?
Please i would like us to be friends on facebook

I seriously need your help

ezme:

In 2011 only those that could document 86% CGPA qualified to enter the second round of applications from Nigeria. I'm not talking got admission, i'm talking got instruction to send transcript for final assessment.

And I went further to tell you this..........

ezme:

The only way you would get in is when people with better CGPA don't apply this year. And believe me many people are looking for a way to get around cost of graduate school and Norway is a highly preferred destination. Preliminary application is free, So you should still go ahead and apply anyway.

And you still saw the need to say this

Don't feel bad if nobody responds to you after now. As I can see that you are the fickle-minded individual that craves being given false hope. I thought I was helping but i believe this would be my last response to you. You come off as a very rude and proud person and this attitude will not get help your way. Go fix yourself.

Hello Mercylicious
I think should be all


What must you hand in with the application?

Both applicants who register their applications online and those who hand in a paper version need to hand in their passport and other necessary documentation.

If you apply online, you will at the same time book an appointment for handing in your documents to the police or an embassy. You will not have to wait in line when you turn up for your appointment.

If are not applying online you need to contact the embassy to find out when to hand in the documents along with the application form.

When you have visited the embassy or police station and handed in your passport and other necessary documentation we will start to process your application.In addition to the completed application form (online or paper version), you must enclose:

1: a completed application form for a student residence permit
2: a copy of your passport
3: a passport photo/ photo that meets specific requirements
4: a letter of admission from the educational institution containing your name, the study programme you have been admitted to and the duration of your studies
5: documentation of financial maintenance (subsistence), for example in the form of documentation of support from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund, a transcript of your bank balance or a confirmation from an educational institution that the money is deposited in its account
6: documentation that you have somewhere to live
7: documentation of paid application fee
8: a translation of the documents into Norwegian or English.

As a rule, it is sufficient that you enclose a copy of the documents with your application, but you must present the original documents when you hand in your application.

See also for better understanding http://www.udi.no/Norwegian-Directorate-of-Immigration/Central-topics/Studies/How-do-I-apply-for-a-residence-permit-for-students/#whatm

P.S: Is your Cousin having an interview or just an appointment to hand in supporting documents?

Personally I feel your chances are very high judging by your class of degree only, although some schools pay more attention to the modules you took during undergraduate study, the link below should help you. It already is a streamlined search, go through the program description see if they meet what you want, and if you meet their pre-requisite requirements.Also, have it in mind that you may be required to take GRE, GMAT and probably a test of English language.

P.S: I believe this site may not contain all the programs that exist so you may want to create the time to look through individual schools. Application is usually free so my take is that you apply to as many as possible.

I'm presently not in Norway, so I would not be in the right position to answer your question, but I think jaga jaga and the others should be able to help you.Also try searching for Nigerians who graduated from or are currently studying at the schools you are interested in on Linkedin.com, you will be overwhelmed by the quality of information you would get from them. Also try "liking" their page on Facebook and you would get other basic information there also. But, trust me on the "linkedin" option, all you have to do is introduce yourself politely when adding them on linkedin.
