Nordic exchange-students (i.e. from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands) may choose among courses in their subject area taught in the Norwegian language as well as the English taught courses.
There are no formal requirements for proficiency in the Norwegian language for Nordic applicants, but with limited knowledge of the Norwegian language they will not profit completely from lectures given in Norwegian.
Nordic citizens do not need a residence permit to study in Norway.
Exchange/ study abroad-students should apply through the international office of their home institution within 1st May for admission to the autumn semester and 1st November for admission to the spring semester.
As places are limited, failure to do so may result in no admission to the English taught programs.
