Admission requirements

Applicants to higher education in Norway must ordinarily meet the basic admission requirements. For applicants with foreign education, the requirements are specified in the Higher Education Entrance Qualification for Persons with Foreign Education (GSU-list).

For admission to this programme, you must document: 

  • education requirements according to the GSU-list. For certain countries there is a requirement of documenting 1 or 2 years of higher education in addition to upper secondary school. Applicants who cannot document the higher education requirement are welcome to apply, and will be individually assessed.
  • language proficiency requirements in English, according to the GSU-list. 

This programme does not require Norwegian language proficiency.

Applicants who lack an English language test will be given the opportunity to take a test, funded by the University of Oslo, to document their language proficiency. We will contact you if this applies to you.


You have to upload all required documents in UiO's online application portal.
