Required specialization and minimum grade requirement

You must have a minimum grade average comparable to a Norwegian C in the required specialization.

All foreign education is individually evaluated during the admission process.

Please note that eligible applicants who fulfill the minimum grade requirement will compete for a study place. Please see the section on ranking for more information on selection criteria.
