In addition to the admission requirements for each programme, applicants must meet the minimum requirements for Higher Education Entrance Qualification in Norway (GSU-list) and fulfill the language requirements in English.
Applicants from most European countries are eligible for admission upon completion of the secondary school leaving certificate that provides the basis for admission to university studies in their home country.
Entrance requirements for applicants from non-European countries may include one or two years of university studies in addition to secondary school.
All applicants must also satisfy specified English language requirements. This means that applicants from some countries will have an adequate command of English and satisfy this requirement with the English they have taken at secondary school in their home country, see the GSU-list.
Applicants for a study programme at a Bachelor level, who do not satisfy this requirement, must pass one of the following examinations/tests:
Official test report form must be sent directly to Harstad University College. The TOEFL code number for Harstad University College is 2634.
Applicants must make sure that their TOEFL/IELTS test score is valid at the time of application (not older than two years).

As a general rule, students from outside the EU (European Union) and the EEA (European Economic Area) must make, and document a deposit of NOK 94 400 (approx. 12 700 EUR) for one academic year, or a deposit of NOK 47 200 (approx. 6 500 EUR) for one semester into a Norwegian bank account. Applicants must make this deposit to show that they have funds available to use as means of supporting themselves whilst living in Norway, and that it can be used towards the cost of daily living.
Please note that this is your money and not a tuition fee, and that it will be returned to you once you have established a personal bank account here in Norway.
You will receive a confirmation letter from Harstad University College as soon as
our deposit account has been credited. This confirmation must be included with your application form for a Student Residence Permit.
