Colleges in Norway

Norway is often the chosen destination for higher studies for students over the world. Norway is home to 38 colleges owned by the government. Students also have the option to apply in private colleges which offer professional degree and diploma programs. Studying in colleges of Norway extends from 1 year to 4 years. Keeping in mind the demand for professional study programs among the youth, the colleges in Norway generally offer only professional and para-professional courses in the departments of engineering, health services, teaching, social work, librarianship, economics and journalism. In fact, colleges in Norway have also introduced research programs over the past decade.

A unique feature of colleges in Norway is that they do not charge tuition fees from resident students. Only international applicants are charged for higher education in the country.
