If you have a Norwegian citizenship and Norwegian High School Diploma, you do not have to document point 5 and 7.

If the original language of your documents is not English or a Scandinavian language, officially certified copies of a translation to one of these languages must accompany certified copies of documents in the original language.



All applicants will be ranked by degrees from their bachelor education within different quotas according to continent/country of origin and profession to ensure a diverse group of students.

We have 5 quotas set aside for different continents/regions, and a sixth quota to have the possibility to correct for underrepresented professions in the other quotas. The number of applicants from each quota is fixed to secure diversity within the student group.

Quota 1: For applicants from countries in Africa

Quota 2: For applicants from countries in Asia

Quota 3: For applicants from countries in Europe (excluded Norway) and Oceania

Quota 4: For applicants from North and South America

Quota 5: For applicants from Norway

Quota 6:  If all quotas 1-5 are filled, remaining places will be moved to quota 6. After admission in quota 1-5, applicants with professions with no or little representation will be prioritized in this quota.

In addition to the continent of origin, we will focus on achieving the greatest possible degree of interdisciplinarity balance within the student group.
