Why study in Oslo?

coworking-space-startuplabHighly educated population

Oslo has one of the most highly educated populations in Europe. Schools are publicly funded, and even at university level there are no tuition fees, other than a small administration charge. There are about 60.000 students in Oslo– counting for 10 per cent of the total population.

Wide range of courses taught in English

At our universities and colleges you will find a wide range of courses taught in English, and our institutions of higher education welcome applications from qualified students from all over the world – and once you are accepted, we´ll help finding a place to live, with priority housing offered to international students.

In addition, almost half of Norway’s R&D activity is located in the Oslo region. Like the world-leading cancer research and treatment carried out connected to Oslo Cancer Cluster, who opened a brand new innovation park in 2015, or energy and nuclear technology research at the Institute for Energy Technology (IFE).

The unique Oslo nature and culture

When you’re not busy studying you can experience the unique Oslo nature and culture any time, any day. Enjoy your favourite band at one of the many festivals the city is hosting, see Munch for free at the National Gallery or spend the day in “Marka” – the much loved forests surrounding the city.
