Norwegian Language Courses

Exchange students may apply for one Norwegian course during their stay at the University of Bergen.

The Norwegian language courses are given in addition to other courses and are not sufficient basis for admission to the University of Bergen. 

Courses are offered at different levels and with either regular or intensive progression.

Courses in Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Many of these courses have field trips, lab work etc. and therefore have limited capacity. The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences may offer additional courses that you can only apply for after semester startup in January/August.
