Bachelor degree at BI

11 years of school is not enough to get into BI. Since students study longer in Norway, you must first eliminate the academic difference — study for a year at a university in your home country, or take one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). Before submitting documents to the university, applicants take an English language exam. The university accepts the results of IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. The minimum IELTS score is 5. The TOEFL score is not lower than 61. The IB diploma is accepted upon admission.
