Norwegian Language Courses

Courses in Norwegian language and culture are offered to international students and employees at UiB and their spouses, as well as immigrants and refugees.

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 §4-7 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.
