Should be, though I honestly do not know what the requirements are.

Here is a master programme in offshore technology: http://www.uis.no/study_programmes/degree_programmes_in_english/offshore_technology_2/
The electronic application form opens at september 1, deadline 30th november. All you have to do is wait until then.

Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Nobody: 1:56am On Jul 31, 2013
hello Nigerians in Norway, informative page i must say. Am a Nigerian medical student in a Caribbean medical university, almost due for clinical rotation. i wish to rotate in Norway for special reasons.
1. I will be paying the same heavy amount for this clinical program whether i stayed here on the island or in a Norway.
2. Am a matured student, having previously secured a Biochemistry degree in a Nigerian University prior to my MD program here in Caribbean.
3. I have some business prospects which i wish achieve, along side my program as i am not getting any younger.
4. Rotating in Norway will go a long way to creating an opportunity for a specialty program in Norway which will help my career.

Presently my school does not have such affiliation with any Norwegian hospital, but they are willing to support me with necessary documents only if secure a spot my self. please good Nigerians, i will be Glad if there is any one here who can help talk to any teaching hospital close on my behalf, or at least link me with a contact. A Nigerian Doctor in Norway, medical students, health workers etc. i am not quite sure if anyone have been in the same scenario. Thanks good people.

You can apply through the Norwegian embassy in Abuja, which means you can apply online. https://selfservice.udi.no/

It's not very impressive skill-wise, but it pays well nevertheless. Plenty of Africans in the league.

I can't help you with any of that. Best way would probably be to contact some hospitals. I can name a couple.

- Akershus Universitetssykehus
- Stavanger Universitetssjukehus
- Ullevål Universitetssykehus
- Universitetssykehuset Nord-Norge

How much would it cost someone to settle down in norway?

austino71: How much would it cost someone to settle down in norway?
There's really a lot of different factors that you have to take into account.

Like do you have a job, what are your qualifications, reasons for moving etc. The cost of living is very high, and you could not settle down just like that with a limited budget, which is why getting a job is so important.

Unless you want to be an illegal immigrant, sure. Nigeria is listed as a safe country, so if you want to MOVE legally, it can't happen just like that.

Entirely depends on you and your intentions. Go there for a visit, research job opportunities, and go back when your visa expires.

I'd say getting a job here is fairly easy, and being a student and all, it makes you look more reliable. Knowing the basics of the language will help a lot, even though some will employ you just knowing English.

Depending on the university, you can also teach and get paid since you're a master student. (Although I'm not 100% sure how this works for students from abroad).
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by CaptJHMiller: 9:42am On Aug 04, 2013
Hello..
Please I have been reading through the thread and I come across some places where people say admission is competitive and you have to have a good grade to have a chance of acceptance.
I always read where people say they have been accepted into 2+ unis and I believe they ended with a very good grade.
Please what are the chances of someone with 2.2? CGPA of 3.35 to be precise.. Thanks.

Hey, sorry for a late reply. Yes, no need indeed.

Well, about the documents. I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be returned, because that is not really something for them to keep. I'm really not sure, so I kindly ask you to contact them by mail and ask.

I can recommend any university here in Norway. They are all modern and up to date, so there's no need for second thoughts. Any job will pay enough to cover most, if not all of your expenses, such as working in a grocery store. I'm sure you can apply for some better jobs that take use of your qualifications, but nothing guaranteed, especially with no knowledge of the language. I would advice to already start on the basics, it will give you a huge advantage in getting a job. Jobs are not hard to come by.

When it comes to grades it entirely depends on the university and programme you're applying for. Some have ridiculously low requirements and anyone can get in, while some have higher requirements. There's always a chacne.

Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Ezegozie(m): 9:11am On Aug 12, 2013
Starflux you are like a living hero in this thread keep it up.

Please i am a final year student of Geology in University.
I will apply 4 my masters in norway universities immediately i finish school.
to study PETROLEUM GEOSCIENCE or GEOPHYSICS

Pls i heard that petroleum geoscience is very competitive and very hard to secure admision unless you make 1st class in ur Bsc.
And i will not graduate with 1st class. But by God's grace, i will graduate with 2nd class upper.

Now i want to ask is GEOPHYSICS also very competitive?

I heard dat if you have work experience, you will be given preference in ur admision, can somebody trick them and tell them that he has work experience and get a STAMPED LETTER FROM A RECOGNISD INDUSTRY to have an upper hand in admision.

Please can U tell me the things needed to stand a good chance of being admitted in Norwegian Universities.

Pls am waiting 4 ur reply, and may God bless you.
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by honourableseyi: 10:23am On Aug 12, 2013
How easy is it to get an admission to an undergraduate level? Judging by what I have read so far, it seems Norway is better suited for those that are going for Msc? What do you think bro?
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 11:13am On Aug 12, 2013
@Ezegozie
Let me get back to you later. Your question requires a lengthy reply and I need to inquire about your programme before I can give a good answer.

honourableseyi: How easy is it to get an admission to an undergraduate level? Judging by what I have read so far, it seems Norway is better suited for those that are going for Msc? What do you think bro?
The problem with undergraduate levels, is that they're often held in Norwegian. You have a few exceptions of course, but they are mostly held in Norwegian. Master degrees are mostly in English. Depending on programme and university, it usually isn't that hard to gain admission.
Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by CaptJHMiller: 11:23am On Aug 12, 2013

why do you guys raise someonea hope and then trash it only to raise it again.

if you read some pages back or even on this page you will see where they say if you don't have a first class its very difficult, here now you say it is not difficult to get admission.
