Admission for Nordplus/Nordlys students

Nordplus is a mobility programme for students at institutions of higher education in the Baltic and Nordic countries. Students at universities in the Nordic countries which do not have a Nordplus network partner at the University of Oslo may still be eligible to apply through the Nordlys network.

How to apply

You must apply through your home institution, so first contact your Nordplus coordinator.

Deadlines

The application must be completed online before:

  • 1 May for the autumn semester (August - December)
  • 1 November for the spring semester (January - June)

Letters of admission will be available online in mid May for the autumn semester and in mid November for the spring semester.

Courses

The University of Oslo offers more than 800 courses taught in English. Nordic students who speak a Scandinavian language may also choose from the list of courses taught in Norwegian.

The course descriptions will give you detailed information about each course, when it is taught, the syllabus, form of examination, etc. The lists are updated for the coming semester in late November/mid-May.

Nordplus students who wish to follow courses that are not included in the network they apply through, must ensure that their home institution will recognise such courses as part of their degree. The student must also contact the department/faculty he/she is applying to, to ensure permission to follow courses at other departments/faculties. If permission is granted, that department/faculty will facilitate contact between the student and the other department/faculty.

Student housing, arrival and orientation

Student housing must be booked before 1 June for the autumn semester and 1 November for the spring semester. Students who follow the directions are guaranteed housing in one of the student residences.

Exchange students should arrive in Oslo the week before the start of a semester to ensure that they will be present for the Orientation Week for new students.

Most questions regarding practical issues are answered on our web pages for new international students.

Contact information

For questions regarding courses and other academic matters, please contact the department or faculty with which your institution has an agreement, see contact information under questions about studies.
