EU and foreign applicants residing in Norway can apply for singular module courses taught in English or Norwegian. Bachelor's and master's level applicants must satisfy Norwegian language proficiency in addition to the admission requirements for module courses.

For singular module courses at the PhD level, we accept applicants from all countries. There are two ways to qualify for singular courses at the PhD level. The first is by documenting that you are currently an active PhD student at an accredited institution of higher learning somewhere in the world by submitting a written confirmation from your institution. The second way is to document knowledge in English that equates to the English requirement in The Norwegian Higher Education Entrance Qualification and either a 3 year (180 ECTS) Bachelor’s degree + a 2 year (120 ECTS) Master’s degree or an integrated 5 year (300 ECTS) Master’s degree. Degrees must be documented by submitting both the diploma, diploma supplement (if one was issued) and transcript of records. The application code is “9301 – Singular courses at the PhD level” and the application deadline is on the 1st of December for courses that are taught in the spring semester and on the 1st of June for courses that are taught in the fall semester.
