Norwegian language courses

UiO offers courses over four levels, with a final goal to be able to study on an academic level in Norwegian. If you already have a profession, the goal is to be able to speak about, and work with your field in Norwegian. Level III is equivalent with Bergenstesten.

Course overview

The language courses are offered in the spring and autumn semesters with teaching held both in the day time and evenings. Course fees apply.

NOTE: Only available for applicants who are residing in Norway/EU/EEA.

Be fluent in Norwegian in 1.5 years

Ideally you can take three courses in 1.5 years, but if you want to speed up the process, you can take a level at the International Summer School's summer session.
