How to apply to the International Summer School

Admissions for 2017 will open December 1.

1. Are you eligible to apply?



See if you are qualified to apply to the International Summer School. Admission requirements are different for Master's and Bachelor's courses.



Before applying, review the ISS program fees and scholarship information. The deadline for scholarship applicants is February 1 (confirmed), and the deadline for self-financing applicants is
March 15.

2. Choose your course(s)



Self-financed applicants

Read the course descriptions and select the course(s) you want to apply for. If you are applying for more than one course, make sure the courses can be combined by checking
our course schedule. Note: Master’s courses can only be combined with Afternoon seminars.

Scholarship applicants

Scholarship applicants may only apply for ONE course. Read the course descriptions and select the course you want to apply for.

3. Gather documents


What kind of documentation you need to submit depends on whether or not you are applying for a scholarship.

See documentation requirements for:

 Scholarship applicants

 Self-financed applicants

 Former students at the University of Oslo

What do we mean by "self-financed"?

4. Choose housing


 When you apply you must choose if you want to live on or off campus. See the different fees. Read more about living on campus.

Admission to the ISS does not automatically grant students the right to on-campus housing at the Blindern Dormitory. On-campus space is limited and we
recomend applicants who wish to live on campus to apply early. 

5. Apply online


Register your application in the University of Oslo's online application system.

  • Please enter your name exactly as it is written in your passport.
  • Please use one email address to avoid creating multiple user IDs/applications.
  • Make sure that you apply for the correct type: Scholarship/Self-financing, on-campus/off-campus.
  • US and Canadian applicants: please apply as "Self-financed", even if you apply for a scholarship. Why?
  • Upload your required supporting documents by the deadline.
  • If you need help, see our guide to applying in UiO's online application portal (available in early December).


Scholarship applicants: February 1

Self-financed applicants: March 15

After March 15, a supplementary round of admission for self-financed applicants may be considered, space permitting.

Your application will be considered invalid if you have not uploaded all supporting documents by the deadline. Invalid applications will not be processed.

6. Final result



Application results are announced depending on the category of the applicant. All applicants will receive an
email with their final result.
