Study permit

Residence Permit for Studies

International students moving to Norway must apply for a residence permit for studies, also called a study permit.


  • Students staying in Norway for less than three months: You don't need to register or apply for a study permit, but you must make sure that you have a valid visa to visit Norway, if applicable.
  • Nordic citizens: Swedish, Danish, Icelandic and Finnish citizens do not need a study permit to study in Norway, but must notify the National Registry if living in Norway for more than 6 months.
