In Norway, autumn semester lasts from August to December. Spring semester lasts from January to June.

Courses are measured in “studiepoeng” according to the ECTS standard (European Credit Transfer System). The full-time workload for one academic year is 60 studiepoeng/ECTS credits.

Grades are awarded according to the European ECTS grading scale from A (highest) to F (lowest), with E as the minimum pass grade. A pass/fail mark is given for some examinations.
