Norwegian Language Courses

The University of Bergen offers Norwegian Language Courses to non-native speakers of Norwegian.

Admission to Norwegian courses is on the basis of ranking within three different categories:

  1. Employees of the University of Bergen and spouses
  2. International students (exchange and programme students)
  3. Refugees and immigrants with a permanent residence permit

Admission to our Norwegian courses is not a sufficient basis for a student resident permit in Norway and for financial support from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen). See regulations §4-6 e

The teaching language is Norwegian bokmål.

Please note: The University of Bergen reserves the right to cancel any course if financial means are not available and if we do not receive a sufficient number of qualified applicants to each course.
