Tuition fees at Norwegian universities
Norwegian authorities have decided that students from countries outside the EU/EEA/EFTA must pay tuition fees at Norwegian universities, beginning in the 2023 autumn semester.
This does not apply to exchange students from partner universities, or to students from the EU/EEA/EFTA.
