StarFlux: @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.

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.


Thanks bro. But what about the standard of living over there? Also if someone can get the total tuition and cost of living for a year, will he be able to augment for the subsequent years? God bless you for prompt response sir

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.
I was refering to undergraduate degrees, they can be easy to gain admission to. Master is always more tricky, and I've said that I cannot guarantee anything. I'm not a person with special powers that can work magic for people. My philosophy though, is that it doesn't hurt anyone to give it a shot as long as you know what you're doing and not fantasizing. Norway is a great country to be in and experience.

If you don't like what I'm doing here, then you can report me to the moderators. Until then my expertise is on lend.
Thank you.

Well, it's the cost of roughly one year, give or take. Standard of living is very high. Even with little money, you can live quite okay smiley

Depending on what you do during that first year, you should be able to learn the language to the extent where you can hold normal conversations (in a couple of months). If you can do that, then getting a job will be so much easier. The job should be enough to cover your fees. Though I do recommend having some back-up money.

@Ezegozie
Still working on it.

Thanks bro for the detailed reply, you have met the need of so many Nigerian youths here and you are still meeting it. I prayed that the good Lord will meet your need in Jesus name.Though in as much as I will like to have the back up stuff, the fact is; it's not forthcoming. I'm the one sponsoring myself;that is why I want to know what to expect before dabbling into it.If it can or can't work out with my budget.If I can be able to get the green light and all the necessary thing I need to put together.I think I should be there ASAP.Thanks once again for your contribution and help.

Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 7:45pm On Aug 12, 2013
Ezegozie: 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.
It was hard to find any information, and people really didn't know all that much, but:

What I ended up doing was that I took a look at the admission requirements for the bachelor degrees in these 2 programmes. Imagine a difficulty scale from 1-10, then I would rate a bachelor in Petroleum Geoscience an 8.

Geophysics I would rate 7.5 I would say they are both fairly competitive, Petroleum Geoscience taking the lead.
Second in class I would say there's a decent chance, and it's definitely worth applying for. Work experience is a plus, yes, but I wouldn't say enough to ruin your chances.

As for the tricking part, I have no idea whatsoever. There's really no secret trick other than a good application.

For example a letter of recommendation, statement of purpose, personal statement, any research you may have done etc, and make sure they get the impression that you are stable financially (though the 92 500 should be enough for this).

Well, the best type of research is probably one gained throug an independent study with a teacher/professor, or through some other research program. But your finaly year project is definitely worth a mention.

Uhm well, personal state would be something like: Mentioning any challenges or difficulties you may have had to deal with.(Perseverance.) If you’ve worked to support yourself through school, working hours per week etc. If you tutored or mentored, took advantage of unique opportunities etc.

Statement of purpose (your goals, why you are applying to this programme, what you want to research etc.)

Basically write intentions, why you want to study this program, motivations, experiences from undergraduate level up until now - what brought your interest in graduate study. This is the most important part of your applications.

I think the general processing time is around 2 weeks.

I would advice you to research flight costs yourself, it's not cheap, but I don't want to give a price here and then it's not correct. Accommodation, hotel in this case, is around 21 000 Naira per night. It depends on where in Norway you are going, capital is usually more expensive. If you live closer to the airport (but it's really too far from the city to be convenient), it's cheaper. And in winter time prices drops a little bit. It would be more advisable to find someone that is willing to have you with them for the time being.

Thank you!

What do you mean with "both letters"? Statement of purpose and personal statement are things which you should include in your application, they are not "separate" so to say, if that's what you were trying to say. There are many different ways to write an application, do what you feel is better for you. Important thing is to not overdo it.

Here is one in mechanical engineering: http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/miprod (Problem is that it's in Norwegian). I can't seem to find any other mechanical engineering course.

Here is one in substainable energy: http://www.ntnu.edu/studies/msisee (English)
A list of energy courses (some of these universities are private owned ones, so ignore those): http://www.mastersportal.eu/study-options/268746846/energy-engineering-norway.html

I really don't have time right now to research and do all these lengthy replies. Try to use Google. Mastersportal.eu can be useful to do research, but I wouldn't bet on all programmes being listed there.
