Good day sir from your writeup I figure out you studying in Norway at present there are certain urgent questions The first question is it too late to start the application process and secondly 92500 noks that is sent is for what? upkeep? I thought it was tuition free?

Good day. Yeah, I am studying in Norway. It is not too late at all. You can make all the requirement in no time and meet up with the deadline. The 92500 is not for tuition but for your accommodation and living expenses. It will be given back to you here totally, and you can use it the way you like. You can check http://www.studyinnorway.no/What-can-I-study for more info.

Best regards.

Hello, Nigerian guys. I think this information will be helpful.
I am advising prospective students that are still looking for application in Norwegian universities to shoot up there morals and double their efforts in there various applications this year. This is simply because, there are strong indications that the free tuition the international students are enjoying will be unfortunately cut off as from next year by the new Norwegian government despite countless reactions from universities' staff, protest staged a week ago by International Student Union (ISU), Norwegian students and other bodies. This is because the government spends more than 80 million Kroner (2.1 billion NGN) yearly on free tuition. Meanwhile, I don't know which side will eventually triumph. But, If they (anti-tuition) finally succeed this year, they might not in coming year/s. You don't have problem IF you have money to pay for your tuition (someone told me last two weeks that it will be like 40,000 Kroner (1,007,987.5 NGN) per semester). But if you are like me, looking for free tuition, you should understand where I am going by now. "A word is enough for a wise" and more grease to your elbow. There might not be another chance.

Secondly, may be you don't know, universities in Germany have resolved to start having free tuition for everyone including international students. So, you could check it out and that might also be helpful. They also have very good economy, that is the heart of Europe. I wish you all the best in your careers guys. Long Live Nigeria smiley smiley

Read my message again, I already said there are challenges.

While you encourage and advise people its also fair to tell them the truth about that particular country, its called balanced opinion. Don't tell people the sweet side of the story only so as to be seen as a 'nice guy'.[/quote]

@Pansophist: I deduced you have been to Norway, from your conversation with INXYZ. Please, I don't think your post is fit in this forum. Why are you discouraging people looking for success from studying in Norway instead of the encouragement? With due respect, I sees it as a resentment from your side. If you want to make advice, this is not the way to do it. Can you compare it with studying/staying in Nigeria? For so many years, people have been going to Norway to study and some people wait there to work, though there might be some challenges. Can you compare it with Nigeria? To me, I sees this forum as a platform to put all hands on deck, to discuss, encourage and solve our challenges as ONE Nigeria, most especially Nigerians in Norway. That was the reason I joined, not to come and be discouraged. Did you spend up to 9 years in Norway? Well, may be I think during your stay there you were not lucky and that does not mean others won't. So, please don't mention those kind of things in this forum. ANY OTHER PERSON SHOULD NOT BE DISCOURAGED BY WHAT MY BROTHER, PANSOPHIST SAID. KEEP THE SPIRIT ALIVE AND STRIVE. I AM SURE YOU WILL MAKE IT. ALL THE BEST.

Two year Msc is always better that One year Msc, especially if you want to quickly go for PhD. I learnt

Thank you,., mine is on the way too.
Just hope to receive it soonest.

Congrats.. I think its better to go for one year MSC than two, considering time & free money from scholarship.

Also, PTDF is one of the best scholarship you can think of, so communicate with them as ealier suggested and grab it.

Although, I believe two year Norwegian education is better for me if all other conditions are constant.

Congratulations!!! You can try that by emailing them on oss_msc@ptdf.gov.ng with your admission letter. Do that as soon as possible. They will look at it and advice you accordingly. Mind you, UK masters are basically a year. As fate would have it, I was not listed among the scholars. Everyone has his luck and time.
chunaph: I just saw the ptdf list and my name is there, i dont know whether they can transfer the scholarship to ntnu geoscience course o. Plz i need ur advice fellow forumites.

chunaph: Its 28 days now and i have not heard anything from udi. Some of my friends that submitted same day have received theirs. Do you guys thing i should do them a mail?

Nairaland made us to loose a lot of information. Only God knows what happened to them. The last person I know that received his visa in this forum got it after 26 days of application after it spent 19 days in Nigeria before getting to UDI.
