As a student taking online courses at NIH, there are different online systems you must access.

Once you receive an email that you have an active student status at NIH, a SMS is sent to your mobile phone (the number you registered in the application portal) within 48 hours. Follow the link in the SMS til activate your student account.

Choose "New user"

If you do not activate your account, you will not have access to any of the NIH systems.


You must complete the registration process in Studentweb, the online student portal, for every semester you take online courses at NIH. You must sign up for the course and exam you wish to take during the semester.

You sign in using your username and password. Choose login method "Feide".

How to complete the semester registration

Make sure to complete the semester registration by the deadline.

  • For the fall semester the deadline is the last Friday in August
  • For the spring semester it is December 1


Once you have completed the semester registration in Studentweb, you should access Canvas. Canvas is the e-learning platform NIH uses. All courses have their own course page, where information regarding the course is posted and assignments are published.

Once the course page for the course you have registered for is published, you will gain access to this. Course pages should be up and running by the beginning of the semester (August or January). You can see all course materials and modules for a specific course on the course page.

Follow the guide on how to change the language settings and where to find your courses.


Wiseflow is the online examination system NIH uses. Your final exam for your courses must be submitted via this system.

You can find more information regading Wiseflow under our Exam and counselling pages. Prior to every exam you will receive and email from the examiation office that your "flow" (exam) is open and you can access it via the system. Once the exam opens you will find the actual exam.

When you have completed your exam, you must upload the document (must be a .pdf file) in Wiseflow. Requirements for the document is available under "Submission of Home Exams".

Normally the exam periods are during the following months:

  • Fall semester courses (August to December): November/December
  • Spring semester courses (January to June): April/May


NIH no longer send out transcripts via post or email to institutions, due to GDPR regulations. Students completed courses at NIH must download the transcript themselves and share it with their own institution.

The Norwegian government created an online portal (Vitnemålsportalen) where all grades from courses completed in Norway is available for students, partly as a measurement so students can share their results with their home universities. The transcripts have a digital signature. This digitally, signed transcript is a valid transcript, that can be verified for its authenticity by clicking on the stamp/signature on the bottom of the page.

It is important that students download their transcript before their Admission period expires. You can find this information under "Studies" in Studentweb.
