Select faculty and courses

1. Choose the relevant faculty and semester(s).


2. Select courses according to the instructions given at Søknadsweb

Exchange students at UIB are offered open and restricted courses. Please check the courses for exchange students before you apply.

In your application you can choose restricted courses from the list that appears in Søknadsweb.

If you are planning to take open courses, restricted courses at the Faculty of Law or Norwegian language courses you choose these in Studentweb (UIB's online registration system) which you will get access to in mid-June.

Open courses may be taken across the faculties and departments.

Admission to restricted courses cannot be granted unless the student has previous knowledge and the required academic background. Furthermore, many restricted courses have limited capacity and therefore, qualified students nominated on an exchange agreement in a relevant subjects area will be prioritized.
