EEA - Norway Grants

Students from selected countries in Eastern and Southern Europe may come to UiO on student mobility with study abroad scholarships through the EEA - Norway Grants programme.

How to apply for student mobility

To find out if you may apply for student mobility with an EEA - Norway Grants scholarship, and how, you must contact the international office at your home institution. The international office at your home institution will know if an exchange agreement is in place.

The University of Oslo has an online nomination and application system for students on the bachelor and master level:

The deadline for nomination and application is 1 May / 15 October.

A confirmation of the award of the scholarship should accompany the application or be uploaded as soon as it is available.

Students on PhD level

Exchange students on the PhD level are treated as guest researchers and will not be given student status at the University of Oslo. These students must contact the host department for academic and practical follow up and will not receive the regular admission letter for students.
