Admission for refugees

General minimum requirements for admission to higher education in Norway for individuals with foreign education vary depending on your country of origin. For some countries completed upper secondary education plus one year of university education is required for admission. You find the requirements for admission at (external link). 

If you have completed upper secondary school but lack one year of university education from your country of origin, you may qualify for higher education in Norway by attending Norwegian upper secondary school. If you would like more information concerning this possibility, we would advice you to contact the municipality where you are doing the introduction programme.
