About Norway

Norway is situated in the western part of the Scandinavian peninsula. It extends about 1,100 mi (1,770 km) from the North Sea along the Norwegian Sea to more than 300 mi (483 km) above the Arctic Circle, the farthest north of any European country. It is slightly larger than New Mexico. Nearly 70% of Norway is uninhabitable and covered by mountains, glaciers, moors, and rivers. Demographically, Norway is 324,220 sq km with 5, 147, 792 people. The main cities of Norway are Bergen, Stavanger, Trondheim and the capital city of Oslo. The hundreds of deep fjords that cut into the coastline give Norway an overall oceanfront of more than 12,000 mi (19,312 km). Galdhø Peak, at 8,100 ft (2,469 m), is Norway's highest point and the Glåma (Glomma) is the principal river, at 372 mi (598 km) long.

Why Choose Norway?

Norway is famous for its outdoor culture and rightly so, given the abundance of natural beauty afforded by the country’s many fjords and mountains. But as a significant number of international students have discovered — and there were about 12,000 at last count — the education system is also worth the journey to one of Europe’s most northern countries.

  • Norway has seven universities, nine specialised university institutions, 22 university colleges, two national colleges of the arts and a number of private higher education institutions.
  • There are more than 200 master’s programmes taught in English, although there are only a handful of bachelor’s degree courses on offer in English.
  • Norway’s universities are well regarded, with theUniversity of Oslo ranking 101st in the 2014–15 QS University World Rankings, and theUniversity of Bergen at 155th.
  • Norway, the northernmost country in Europe, includes a great variety of natural scenery, and the span from the lowlands in the southeast to the spectacular fjords and high mountains and coastline in the west and north is very striking.
  • Norway is a modern and wealthy country with a high standard of living. It is a safe society and the crime rate is low. It has an attractive labour market and the unemployment rate is only 3.2 per cent (May 2014). Norway has an open economy and many international corporations and extensive foreign trade. The country is a world leader in industries such as oil and gas, oil and gas services, renewable energy, the maritime sector, telecommunications, high-tech products and fish farming.
  • It is a welfare society where it is quite possible to combine a challenging career with family life and leisure.
  • Norway offers you a unique student experience and Norwegian institutions of higher education welcome applications sent by qualified students from all over the world.
  • Internationalization is a priority within all sectors of the Norwegian education system, and universities and university colleges are constantly working to facilitate for international students. Around 15 000 foreign nationals are currently enrolled at Norwegian institutions of higher education. International students may apply for admission to a variety of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes. You may come to Norway as student through established exchange programmes, institutional agreements or as a so called "free mover", where you arrange the stay by yourself (type of study, length and financing).
