Praktisk informasjon om nettstudier

This page contains practical information about the online vocational study programmes. An overview of the programmes is at the bottom of the page.

Online student-life

There is great freedom and flexibility being an online student, which will require great discipline and planning skills. On average, a full-time student is expected to study 40 hours per week (equivalent to having a full-time job), and part-time students are expected to study 20 hours per week. During Enrolment week you will be introduced to the online learning platform and get to know the progression plan and the content of the study program. You will also get the opportunity to meet your fellow students.

Our online programs are organised in modules, which means that you’ll get access to new learning material each week (every second week for part-time students). Access is usually given on Mondays before 10 o’clock Central European Time. At the end of each module, there’ll typically be a test or an assignment.

Lectures are given in English, and there are both Norwegian and international teaching staff.

Feedback and follow-up

At Noroff you’ll be able to study according to your own schedule, whenever and wherever. As long as you follow the set progression plans and deadlines – how you spend your days are up to you. Our teachers see you and care about you, and they will do their outmost to help you succeed with your studies. They will give you support and valuable feedback on your tasks and projects. The digital learning platform both allows and encourages you to connect with your fellow online students. You may discuss, collaborate and inspire each other, which is very helpful throughout your learning experience. 

Student services

Noroff online students also have a support-network outside the digital classroom. For any questions or concerns that you prefer not to discuss with your teacher, or for any requests regarding your student status (general questions, confirmations, Lånekassen, leave of absence, cancellations, transcripts etc.) we’ll assist you at This email address is being protected from spambots.

For questions about invoice/payment please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Hardware and software

As an online student, you’ll spend most of your time in front of a computer. So, it is essential that you have the necessary equipment (PC/Mac) that works well with your study program. You’ll receive more information about the specific requirements (hardware and software) by e-mail from the responsible teacher, and it’s your responsibility to make sure everything is in place by the start of your first semester.

If you already own similar equipment, ask your teacher if this is sufficient.

Information

Before start-up of your studies, we will send you useful information about being an online-student at Noroff and about the study program you have chosen (course overview, syllabus, hardware requirements etc.). This will help you prepare in the best possible way.

Bachelor abroad (2+1)

After completing a two-year vocational program at Noroff you will for most study programs have the opportunity to take advantage of our excellent cooperation with International Universities. You can apply directly into the third year of a bachelor’s degree program in England, Australia, Wales or South Africa. You’ll find more information about bachelor's degrees abroad here
