Accept the offer of admission

When we have finished processing your application, we will ask you to accept/decline your offer of admission in Søknadsweb.

  • You will be notified by email.
  • If you have applied for restricted courses, you will see which courses you have been admitted to.
  • If we have removed any of the restricted courses that you applied for, it means that we cannot offer you admission to that specific course.
