Students from outside the European Economic Area (EU- and Swiss Citizens) must apply for a residence permit (and a visa if applicable) immediately after they have received their Admission letter from the University of Oslo.
You will need the information below when registering your application for a student residence permit on udi.no:
UiO organisation number: 971 035 854
E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Address in Norway: c/o University of Oslo, International Student Reception, PO Box 1083 Blindern, N-0318 Oslo
- When asked to send the application to a reference, please choose NO, as this has no relevance to your application.
Some of the required documents are available in Søknadsweb:
- Admission letter from the University of Oslo
- Study Plan letter addressed to the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI)
The Study Plan letter confirms that you are guaranteed student housing. You will therefore not need to present a housing contract.
How do I document financing?
The documentation regarding financing depends on your student status. Please go to the page that is aimed at your student status:
Students admitted to exchange studies at UiO
- Non-EU/EEA-citizens coming on exchange studies for one or two semesters at UiO (Bilateral, Erasmus+)
