Practical information

After you are accepted as an exchange student at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, there are certain things you need to organize before your arrival in Norway. In the menu to the left you will find information that we ask you to read carefully when planning your exchange semester with us.

As an exchange student at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, you can apply for housing through The Foundation for Student life in Oslo (SiO).

All students from outside the Nordic countries, staying more than three months, have to apply for a study permit through the Norwegian Immigration Office, UDI.

All incoming students need to have their own health insurance. It is important that you have it prior to your arrival as you need the documentation of your student resident permit and , if applicable, a visa. European health insurance card and/ or private health insurance is required.

Although there are no tuition or semester fees for our exchange students, please note that the rumour is true: Norway is an expensive country to live in.

Incoming exchange students to NIH have the opportunity to learn Norwegian while studying in Oslo.

Students from countries with a high occurrence of tuberculosis are obligated to undergo tuberculosis testing if they intend to stay more than three months in Norway.
