Hello elders in the house.... This are my questions
1..i have 2.8 GPA in my degree, am eligible for masters in Norwegian schools
2..is there any minimum amount of money one must have as an applicant?
3...what's the general requirements for admission
Thanks as you answer my questions
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by via2eddiez: 11:45pm On Oct 15, 2018|
Good day to you!
I would like to know if the pay from jobs gotten as students can make up the NK104,500 required?
Secondly, I would also like to know if it's easy to secure a job upon completion of ones studies.
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 12:38am On Oct 21, 2018|
via2eddiez:Yes. 20 hours a week (as is allowed) will yield more than 100k (around 120-130k would be my guess with an average hourly wage).
Getting a job isn't that difficult if you can speak and write Norwegian. If you don't speak Norwegian then you'll have a tough time finding someone willing to hire you.

Pls, kindly help with the list of cheap schools in Norway available for admission and doesn't require TOEFL or ielts.thanks
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 7:02am On Oct 22, 2018|
This last sentence/statement is very very very true . Prospective applicants should note this.

Hello guys, I am new here and have been reading this thread for a while now. Please can one differ his admission if you don't have the 5.5million currently?
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by bucky123(m): 9:02pm On Oct 22, 2018|
Deferment of admission is not allowed, for UiS at least (I believe it should be the same for other schools tho).
I can't say for other schools.
If you're admitted to UiS and can't make it to Norway that year for one reason or the other, you have to re-apply for admission.
The only thing you should do (and can do) is notify them and they will keep your documents for the next application period.
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by mariaekay(m): 4:36am On Oct 23, 2018|
bucky123:Thanks @ bucky123. I desire to apply for offshore technology in UiS but don't have the money if given admission
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by bucky123(m): 10:51am On Oct 23, 2018|
I can't even overemphasize that.
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 12:31am On Oct 25, 2018|
Uchboggy:Indeed. Many are told that Norwegians excell at speaking English. This is true for the most part, but this doesn't mean that's what they prefer speaking. I was at a party once with this exchange student fromt Finland. The guy didn't know a single word in Norwegian, and despite the host's attempt to get people to speak English only, everyone continued to speak Norwegian to the student's dismay.
That's essentially what you can expect in everyday life as well with no skills in the language. You'll feel disintegrated and not a part of the community. English won't keep you floating at all.

|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by yinkeys(m): 5:15pm On Oct 25, 2018|
So we've got to learn Norwegian too.
Scandinavian countries are the best run countries in the world but how are you guys coping with their weather
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 1:56am On Oct 26, 2018|
yinkeys:Spring: pretty OK, but it rains quite a bit. Summer: amazing with very comfortable temperatures. Fall: rains, and days are short. Winter: pretty much constant darkness with only a few hours a day of sun. You'll find the weather depressing unless you adapt the Norwegian way of dealing with it: sit inside and have a good time with friends (commonly called "kos" - having a good time sort of).
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 7:58am On Oct 26, 2018|
StarFlux:all your contributions are written as if you’re reading my mind.you got this on spot on!...I personal HATE winter here, it’s depressing. Thanks to YouTube, my number 1 companion
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by SnazzyBaba: 1:34pm On Oct 26, 2018|
Hi Sunks, kindly permit me to ask about Oslo, what is the weather like, jobs, etc is the city big like Helsinki?
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by captainamiedi1: 7:39am On Oct 27, 2018|
pls, i want to ask about the language because im using duolingo to learn the language and i think im doing fine. can you help with other source? thanks
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 8:12am On Oct 28, 2018|
captainamiedi1:sorry , I’m not even interested in learning it so I don’t have any source.
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by captainamiedi1: 8:54am On Oct 28, 2018|
wow. how are you coping without the language.
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 5:31pm On Oct 28, 2018|
Uchboggy:You know what they say: great minds think alike
captainamiedi1:Duolingo is good. NTNU also has a great online course with audio: https://www.ntnu.edu/now/chapter-1
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 8:11pm On Oct 28, 2018|
captainamiedi1:funny enough I don’t feel it cos we are taught in English, maybe when I’m done with school and have to get job and all then I’ll feel it but I don’t think I plan to stay that long in norway
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by smokers: 12:39am On Oct 29, 2018|
[quote author=StarFlux post=71973186]You can apply for a job seeker visa during your studies, but you must document sufficient funds during this period which is a lot of money: 240k NOK per year.
Is there a way to retain stay despite this requirement or you have to come back to Nigeria
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by StarFlux: 1:34am On Oct 29, 2018|
Uchboggy:Your post got me thinking.
The truth is that yes, Norway does have a high material standard of living. But stuff and things alone cannot make you happy. So what is Norway really like for the Nigerian mind? It's hard to say to be frank with you guys. I think though, that if you are intent on adapting and integrating yourself with society, you'll have a good life. However, integration comes at a cost. The Norwegian way of life is highly sedentary and the culture demands that you become like all other Norwegians. If you deviate from whatever "Norwegian" really means in the social hive-mind, then you're off to having a rough time. Hence you'll have many immigrants saying Norwegians are cold, impersonal and unwelcoming. That's not really the case to be honest, it's just that the culture values discretion and avoidance to a large degree (unfortunately). Traditional Nigerian village life is mostly collective in nature (in contrast to the individualistic Norwegian social structures), and even city life in Nigeria is to a certain degree collective although capitalism is pretty much destroying the remnants of collective society for the sake of individualism. So in the end, what is it like to live in a society that is individualistic through and through? In my opinion it can be lonely and sad, especially in the beginning, so be ready for that. That is not to say Norwegians are bad people (they're not). However, society is vastly different from Nigeria and don't deceive yourself by thinking that life will automatically be perfect over here.

I don't know, unfortunately. Maybe.

I would like to know if TOEFL or IELTS is required since my undergraduate degree was English taught?
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 5:27pm On Oct 31, 2018|
via2eddiez:it depends on your school, some schools might not require and some can waive it , send them an email.

|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by yinkeys(m): 2:24pm On Nov 01, 2018|
StarFlux:Glad you're doing pretty okay
How about Nigerian meals ?
Do you guys have African food stores at least
I mostly hear the same thing about winter
My friend told me winter is depressing & he's sometimes depressed for like 6 months in a year because of cold
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by Uchboggy(m): 6:41am On Nov 02, 2018|
yinkeys:your friend is right about winter,
There are African stores and I must commend those guys, there are some things you will find there and be shocked how/why they brought them here. You’ll be wondering if anyone would ever buy them. The only issue is that African stores are very expensive compared to what is obtainable for the same item in Africa. You’ll get used to things being expensive sha because everything in Norway is expensive especially when you always convert to naira .lol
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by yinkeys(m): 10:28am On Nov 02, 2018|
Uchboggy:You guys still find ways to save a lot & pay black tax, i mean most people still send money home. This means it's still better than home
|Re: Nigerians In Oslo, Norway by frontliner065(m): 12:39am On Nov 03, 2018|
Uchboggy, could you kindly mention some that may not need any proficiency? Thank you in advance.
