The majority of Norwegian universities and state university colleges are publicly funded and the Norwegian government considers access to higher education for all to be an important part of the Norwegian society. Thus, as a rule, Norwegian public institutions do not charge tuition fees. This also applies to international students, no matter which country you come from.
If certain prerequisites are met you could also be eligible for financial support that can pay for some of your living expenses. Through various fellowship programmes, scholarship schemes or student loans, international students can receive funding for a full degree or a limited number of semesters. You should be aware that these funding opportunities are few and will in most cases not cover the total costs of you stay in Norway. In most cases funding from your home country or the use of private funds will be necessary.
Norway currently has 9 universities, 8 university colleges and 5 scientific colleges owned by the state.
