Study permit

Students holding a EU/EEA-citizenship do not need to apply for study permit. Other from outside EU/EEA must apply for a study permit through UDI Application Portal.

Norwegian immigration authorities require that self-financed applicants coming from outside EU/EEA countries must document that they have sufficient funds to live in Norway. Without such documentation, a study permit will not be granted.
You must show that you have funds equivalent of NOK 123.519 per year for the academic year 2020 - 2021 (NOK 61.760 for one semester).
