Norwegian language requirements for self-financing bachelor degree students
The following applies to only students accepted to a Bachelor Degree Programme in Norwegian, not to degree programmes in English.
Passing level 3 or the Bergens test
- In order to start a study programme you must have fulfilled the Norwegian language requirements by passing level 3 (NORINT0130) of the University Norwegian language test, or the advanced level of the Bergens test.
- International students who have not already passed such a test will have a place reserved for them in the Norwegian language course comprised of Norwegian language (level 1, 2 and 3) and Norwegian life and society. The course goes over two semesters and is a full time course.
Please note that you must complete Norwegian language requirements within one academic year. This is due to the Norwegian Immigration Authorities regulations which do not allow for delays in the Norwegian courses.
