After you’ve received your letter of admission you should contact your nearest Norwegian Embassy or Consulate for information on the study permit application procedure and apply from your country of origin.
While some candidates can apply online from within Norway or through a Norwegian embassy, most students will need to hand in a paper application form to their closest Norwegian embassy or consulate.
When you hand in your student residence permit application form, you must also provide your passport, along with other necessary documentation. You’ll need to submit:
- A completed application form
- Receipt of having paid the application fee (NOK 3,200, which is roughly US$370)
- A valid travel document (i.e. passport)
- Two recent passport-sized photos with a white background
- Evidence of admittance to an approved full-time education program
- Evidence of sufficient financial funds for the entire period of study, including funds to support any accompanying family, which should be in a Norwegian bank account (it can be difficult to open an account in a Norwegian bank without a Norwegian personal number, so you can usually deposit the required amount into an account established by your educational institution). You need to prove you have access to NOK 111,657 for each academic year (10 months), which is approximately US$13,000.
- Evidence that you have somewhere to live (such as a house, apartment, bedsit or room in a hall of residence)
- Evidence that you will leave Norway when your residence permit expires (usually in the form of a return ticket)
- Completed and signed UDI document checklist, which you should print off and hand in along with your other documents
Processing times for student residence permits will vary and may take two months or so, therefore it is advisable to apply as soon as you are able.
