ENG1201 Proficiency - Information for non-native speakers of Norwegian:

This course requires proficiency in Norwegian, as one of the components of the exam is translation from Norwegian to English. Non-native speakers of Norwegian may apply for permission to use a bilingual dictionary between Norwegian and their first language during this exam. English to first language dictionaries will not be approved.

It is also possible to apply for alternative exam questions that do not require Norwegian proficiency. Applications must be submitted to the Department before 15 October (autumn semester) or 15 March (spring semester). Applications must be renewed by the deadlines stated above every semester. Please note that students who wish to resit an exam must also resubmit their application for alternative exam questions.

If you are considering applying for alternative exam questions, we strongly recommend that you first contact the lecturer in charge of the course in question.
