Admission for international students

All Noroff University College study programs are delivered in English, enabling us to welcome English speaking international students, online and on-campus. In addition, all our Vocational Online programs are delivered in English.

If you choose to move to Norway to study at Noroff, 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

If you are going to study at one of our campuses, you will automatically be a part/member of a Student Welfare Organization.

These are:

Kristiansand: Studentsamskipnaden i Agder (SiA)

Stavanger: Studentsamskipnaden i Stavanger (SiS)

Bergen: Studentsamskipnaden på Vestlandet – Sammen

Oslo: Studentsamskipnaden i Oslo (SiO)

In addition to accommodation services, the student welfare organizations have a great deal of resources available to its members such as discounts on services etc. More information can be found by contacting them directly.

In addition to accommodation services, you can find properties that are for sale or rent at finn.no (in norwegian only).

Living Expenses

Norway is perceived as an expensive country to live in. On average a person might need NOK 10,000 per month, but this depends on a lot of things.

Here is how you might spend that money:

Housing: Plan on roughly NOK 3500 - 6500 a month. Depending on the property, numbers of residents in the apartment, which city you live in and the agreement. The agreement will usually include water and sewage. However, electricity and Internet may not be included.

Food: Plan on about NOK 2400-3200 a month, or about NOK 600-800 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: This can be quite variable and depends on which study program you have applied for. If you have roughly 2000 NOK each semester, you will cover the average spend on books.

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

Contact for International Applicants

If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about being a student in Norway, please contact our student support by phone at +47 38 00 00 00, open CET 12:00 to CET 15:00 Monday to Friday, or send any questions by our Support Portal.
