Hedmark University College

Hedmark University College is located in the south-eastern part of Norway, approximately 2 hours drive north of Oslo. With more than 4000 students it is one of the largest university Colleges in Norway. The college provides high standards and modern research-based teaching.

Hedmark University College is a international oriented university college and emphasises student and staff exchanges through European and national cooperation programmes and bilateral agreements.

From the autumn of 2003 HiHM has offered courses taught in English at the faculties, allowing for freer movement of international students. There will be no Norwegian language requirements for foreign students attending these courses.

We stress the importance of taking good care of our students. Emphasis is placed on close contact between lecturers and students through guidance. At Hedmark University College we are committed to making our students feel welcome.
