The country situated in Northwestern Europe is the Kingdom of Norway. About 5.3 million people live in it, and this population is extremely diverse. Also at universities in Norway, with over 15,000 foreign nationals enrolled, diversity is one of the main strengths of the highly regarded Norwegian educational system.
Courses generally start in August in Norway. Between December 1 (the previous year) and March 15, universities set their application deadlines, although some schools might have 'pre-qualification' deadlines. The criteria for academic and formal admission are set by universities. If you are planning to apply for a Master's degree in Norway, you will need to demonstrate that your previous undergraduate education includes courses of at least one and a half years of study in a related subject. Make sure you do your homework aearly, so that the dates of the submission are not overlooked.
The country that brings higher education to a special international level is Norway. The majority of Norway's public universities do not charge tuition fees, and students find it a good economic choice for their higher education. The tuition fee levy is also applicable to foreign students who are rising their high-quality degree courses in Norway. You may be expected to pay a small fee per semester, depending on where you want to study, but that is usually between NOK 300 and NOK 600. The student union membership fee gives access to health care, therapy and sports facilities, as well as an official student passport. Your student card will reduce your public transit fees and give you discounts for museums and art galleries. There are some courses you will have to pay for at public universities, but these are uncommon, and appear to be at postgraduate level. You will be obligated to pay tuition fees if you want to study at a private university, and these will differ at each institution. EU/EEA students and foreign students have several scholarships open, make sure to check with your chosen institution about your eligibility.
Depending on where you want to live in Norway, your living costs will vary. Bigger cities are going to be more costly than smaller towns and cities. To help you cover your expenses, you might be eligible to apply to the Norwegian State Education Loan Fund for a grant. You can budget, on average, between NOK 9,500 and NOK 20,000 per month. Without any approval, students from an EU/EEA country may get part-time jobs. Before you can get part-time jobs, students from elsewhere would be expected to apply for a job permit. No matter where you are from, during term time and full-time during the holidays, you are required to work up to 20 hours a week.
In addition to the quality of its education and ease of living, Norway provides nature lovers with a unique experience. With its spectacular fjords, you are never far from the coast; never far from awe-inspiring hot spots for climbing or skiing; and you get to experience the midnight sun in the summer, and thrilling snowy winters. It will be a very rewarding opportunity to study abroad in Norway, culminating in a valuable academic degree that will be a remarkable bonus for your career.
