For international applicants residing in Norway (Application deadline 15 April / 1 November) http://www.uib.no/en/matnat/54992/international-master-applicants-residing-norway

Semester

Autumn (main uptake) and spring.

Admission Requirements

A first degree (bachelor's degree) of three or four years duration from an approved institution of higher education, as well as proficiency in the English language.

Your bachelor's degree must include courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Competence in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics are especially important.

Who may apply

The master's programme in Process Technology is only open for Norwegian applicants and international applicants residing in Norway.

Applicants with a Bachelor's Degree in Process Technology may apply for this programme. Applicants with a Bachelor's Degree in other fields of study can also be assessed if their degree includes enough mathematics, physics, chemistry, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. The average grade of an international bachelor's degree has to be at least 2nd class, upper division/B (correspond to a Norwegian grade C).

After each application deadline the master's programme in Process Technology receives many more applications than there are places available. Applicants will therefore be ranked according to their grades and the academic content of their bachelor degree.
