A sponsor is a relative/employer/friend (self-funded applicants) or an organisation (applicants with loan/scholarships from home country) who are willing to finance your living costs during your studies.
Please note that UiT cannot help you find a sponsor or scholarships.
A guarantee from a sponsor is:
A letter in which the sponsor states that he/she will guarantee that the required amount of funding (NOK 126 357) will be at the disposal of the student during the whole academic duration in the student deposit account in Norway. The letter should include: sponsor's full name, the applicant's name, sponsor's signature, sponsor's postal address/email address
AFTER ADMISSION: The required amount must be transferred within the deadline 1 June to the Student Deposit account. Details regarding this arrangement will be sent to admitted students with their offer of admission. Read more on Student visa deposit for international students.
Applicants from developing countries: In assessing your proof of financial ability, the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) will make reference to your individual circumstances (job, civil status, property ownership and employment history), your economic commitments in your home country, the potential of emigration, the socio-economic condition in your home country to decide whether you should be granted student visa (Study Permit) or not. Therefore, we strongly advice you to upload only genuine and factual proof of financial ability to increase your chance of obtaining a student visa after being offered admission to UiT.
