Why study in Norway

Norway is famous for its outdoor culture and rightly so, given the abundance of natural beauty afforded by the country’s many fjords and mountains. But as a significant number of international students have discovered — and there were about 12,000 at last count — the education system is also worth the journey to one of Europe’s most northern countries.

Norway has seven universities, nine specialised university institutions, 22 university colleges, two national colleges of the arts and a number of private higher education institutions.
There are more than 200 master’s programmes taught in English, although there are only a handful of bachelor’s degree courses on offer in English. Norway’s universities are well regarded, though the country just misses out on a spot in the Top 100 of the 2012 QS World University Rankings, with the University of Oslo the country’s highest ranked institution at number 111.
