Foreign students are admitted to universities and other institutions of higher education in Norway mainly through international programs and bilateral agreements with comparable institutions abroad.
Buskerud University College offers a wide range of courses in English to exchange students coming from partner institutions abroad.
Exchange/study abroad-students who are applying to study one or two semesters at Buskerud University College should apply through the nternational office at their home institution.
Application form will be available through their international office or upon request through email@example.com (for students studying at partner institutions ONLY!).
The following documents should be attached with the application form:
Application deadlines are 1st May (admission to autumn semester) or 1st November (admission to spring semester).
Student accommodation will be pre-booked for exchange/study abroad students as long as they apply before the deadline.
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.
The application form is available upon request from firstname.lastname@example.org or at the international office of your home institution.
