We would like to welcome students from partner universities to a study period at Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL).

HVL is a merger of these three former institutions: Bergen University College, Sogn og Fjordane University College and Stord/Haugesund University College.

We have five campuses on the West Coast of Norway, located in Bergen, Førde, Haugesund, Sogndal and Stord.

The deadlines for applying to HVL are:

15 April for the autumn semester (August - December)
15 October for the spring semester (January - June)

Note! You have to be nominated by your home university in order to apply for exchange through our online system.
