If you choose to move to Norway to Study at Noroff University College, there are some practical issues you need to consider:

Living in Norway

If you plan to study in Norway you should check the Immigration requirements at udi.no because the requirements change from country to country.

Language

Most Norwegians can speak and understand English. It is suggested that you take a little time to learn some phrases in Norwegian as this is always appreciated.

Accommodation

All students at both Noroff University College and Noroff Vocational School are part of the Student Organisation Samskipnaden in Agder. This is the regional student union. In addition to accommodation services, SiA has a great deal of resources available to its members such as discounts on services etc. More information can be found by contacting SiA directly. If you would like to find out about accomodation without using SiA, all Norwegian properties that are for sale or rent can be found at finn.no.

Living Expenses

Norway is regarded as an expensive country to reside in. On average a person might need NOK 10,000 per month.

Here is how you might spend that money:

Housing: Plan on roughly NOK 4000 - 5000 a month for a one-bedroom apartment, more if you want one in the middle of the city center. Depending on the property and agreement, this will usually include water and sewage. However, electricity and Internet may not be included.

Food: Plan on about NOK 2400 a month, or about NOK 600 a week. Depending on whether or not you cook at home or go out to eat. Going out to a restaurant is very expensive. For instance, a burger and fries with a drink might cost you NOK 250.

Books and supplies: NOK 1000 a month would not be out of the question, but you could end up spending more of the money at the beginning of the semester.

Transportation: This can be quite variable, but you should plan on at least NOK 500-600 a month.

Examples of Norwegian Prices for common goods:

  • 1 kg of chicken: 100 NOK
  • 500 grams of beef: 49 NOK
  • 1 kg of cheese: 79 NOK
  • 1 loaf of bread: 30 NOK
  • 1 bottle of beer in a food store: 25-35 NOK
  • 1 beer at a pub: 80-100 NOK
  • 1 kg of apples: 25-30 NOK
  • 1 kg of rice: 25-30 NOK

We have a streamlined application process for our international students:

  1. Apply for enrolment at Noroff University College at our admission page. The deadline for International applicants for citizens outside of the EU is April 15th. This date ensures that there is sufficient time for UDI to process any visa issues and for the student to arrange accommodation.
  2. Upload documentation to cover any admission requirements for your chosen course. You can check the requirements for your specific country here regarding what type of education you must have to qualify for admission to a university college in Norway.
  3. If you meet our admission requirements and there is space on your chosen course, you will receive an offer of enrolment. This can be accepted by returning our study contract. You are then enrolled and ready to begin your studies.
  4. We can, if required, issue a confirmation of enrolment.
  5. According to UDI regulations, some foreign students need to show that they have the finances available for studying and living in Norway. This is normally done by transferring money to a Norwegian account and giving a receipt of the transaction to UDI. The sum of money needs to cover tuition fees and costs for living for the first year of study. According to UDI the amount required is around NOK 99.500, (around 10,250 Euros). This amount is adequate for the registration fee, the semester fee and documentation fees towards UDI for living costs. Once you have started your course and been registered, we deduct the registration fee and tuition fee for the semester from your deposit. The rest of your deposit is refunded to your chosen account. The bank account listed below is the bank account you will use.
  6. Also, you can pay the fees into that deposit account (listed below). Please put your bank details in the comment field on the personal details page in our portal. Once the amount is paid, we will issue you a receipt and confirmation of the deposit with details of amount paid etc. Please mark the payment clearly with your name and details. If for any reason you are unable to start your studies we will refund your money to your account with the information you provided in the comment field in the personal details section of our portal.

What if I can’t start my studies in Norway?

If by any chance you are prevented from starting as a student at Noroff, we will refund your money according to the bank details issued by yourself in your personal details section in My Page (completed when you apply for a course). We refund everything except the registration fee (currently NOK 1.500) and the international cancellation and refunds fee (currently NOK 3.000).

Fees

Noroff is not government funded. This means students need to pay the tuition fee. We have the same fee rate for all of our Bachelor programs. The current fee is listed along side each course. Check the page Digital Forensics for an example.

For those who are eligible, Norway has a Norwegian State education loan fund. This fund offers financial support for students. For more information please visit their website. The information is also in English.
