The Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service
The Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service (NUCAS) also known as Samordna opptak, coordinates the admission to ordinary undergraduate study programmes at all universities, university colleges, and some private university colleges in Norway.
The NUCAS admission system is primarily meant for Norwegian citizens and individuals with a permanent or renewable residence permit in Norway.
Study programmes taught in English are not part of the coordinated admission service provided by NUCAS. International students who would like to apply for programmes taught in English can find information on this web site www.studyinnorway.no
Postgraduate programmes are not part of the coordinated admission service provided by NUCAS. For information on admission to postgraduate degrees, please contact the respective institutions directly.
Applicants have to meet the general admission requirements and document proficiency in the Norwegian language in order to be eligible for admission. Applicants can find information on general requirements on the GSU-list.
Some study programmes have requirements in specific subjects from upper secondary school, work experience, entrance test etc. in addition to the general requirements.
The application deadline for applicants with secondary education from non-Nordic countries is 1st March.
The application deadline for applicants with secondary education from the Nordic countries is 15th April.
Applicants must meet all requirements before 1st July. Secondary school graduates must submit their school leaving certificate before 1st July.
Applicants with foreign secondary education will be assessed individually and the institutions you have applied to will decide who will be offered a study place. The assessment is based on the grade point average/grades from upper secondary school/high school, the grade or points in the examination in Norwegian amongst other things.
