With regard to the introduction of tuition fees for international students beginning in 2019, the Norwegian government has reached an agreement on a budget through 2023. Currently, 13,000 international students are studying in Norway, with 2/3 of them coming from outside the EU. They currently enjoy the same rights to tuition-free education as students in Norway. Fees should be determined at the university’s discretion, according to the plan that was put up earlier this year.

The government will start putting the policy into effect once the budget has been approved by the legislature. Then, more concrete information will start to surface, such as how much it will cost non-EEA students to study in Norway. The cost of attending Norwegian institutions is currently merely an estimate that is being circulated. Fees were instituted in order to draw in only the most “motivated” of international students
In light of this, international students, planning to study in Norway can plan ahead and organize their finances appropriately.
