Enter a university abroad

Bachelor degree at UiA

You cannot enter university in Norway after the 11th grade, as school education here lasts longer. Applicants need to eliminate the academic difference. There are two ways to do this: either study for a year at a university in your home country, or complete one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). Before applying to the university, you need to pass an exam for knowledge of the English language. The university accepts the results of IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score is 5. The TOEFL score is not lower than 60.
