Tuition fees for students from outside EU/EEA and Switzerland

From the autumn semester of 2023 full degree students from countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland must be prepared to pay tuition fees.

Applicants from countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland/EFTA  applying for a degree in Norway starting autumn 2023, must be prepared to pay tuition fees. 

Tuition fees can vary significantly between different subjects. To get a complete guide on the tuition fees, we recommend visiting the websites of individual institutions. Click here for the list of institutions.

Please note that the fees do not cover all costs associated with studying in Norway. You will need to budget for expenses such as accommodation, textbooks, and living expenses. Please find more information about living costs here.

You will not have to pay tuition fees if: 

  • You are an exchange student.
  • You started your degree studies in Norway before 2023 - meaning if you are in your second year autumn 2023, you will not pay fees.
  • You are a student from the EU/EEA or from Switzerland.
