Application procedure MSc

Please read the following information closely before applying for admission.

1. Assess if you are qualified to apply

Find out if your academic background meets the admission requirements.

If you are not qualified, your application will be rejected.

2. Find out if you need to document financial ability

  • If you are an applicant from outside the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you must document your ability to finance your stay in Norway, in order to be granted a student residence permit. The required amount is currently 126,357 NOK. Read more about how to document your financial ability.
  • If you are an applicant from a Nordic country or a country within the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you do not need to document financial ability. Learn how you may finance your studies. There is no tuition fee at NHH. Students only pay a small semester registration fee of approximately NOK 800. 

3. Prepare all the documents required

Please make sure you have all the required documents.

Are you preparing for the TOEFL/IELTS/PTE or the GMAT/GRE test? Please note that this process may take several weeks. Make sure to schedule your test in time. The deadline for presenting a valid test result is 15 February.

4. Register your application

The online application portal is available from 1 November until 15 February.

To register, press International Applicant, enter your e-mail address and follow the instructions. Make sure to enter your name as stated in your passport, as wrongfully spelled names may cause delays in your visa application. Use one e-mail address to avoid creating multiple applications. Please upload the supporting documents within the application deadline, carefully using our guidelines on how to upload documents . We advise you to complete the application at the earliest possible time, and if possible, to upload all the documents at the same time.

5. Pay attention to your email

After you have submitted your application with supporting documents, we will pre-screen it. If anything is lacking, we will inform you by email and you will be given a deadline to submit supplementary documentation. 

6. Complete online video/written assessment

After your application has been successfully pre-screened, you will receive an email invitation to an online video and written assessment. You have to complete the assessment before we can start reviewing your application, so we advise you to do it as soon as possible after you receive the invitation. 

Please note that applications that are incomplete will not be processed.

7. Receive your application result

Students are admitted continuously during the spring semester. However, most applicants will be notified of their application result in the end of April. You will receive the result by email and may also see the result in the application portal.

The study offer must be accepted within two weeks after the notification of the application result. The deadline to accept will be stated in the email confirming the admission offer. 

If accepted, you will receive information about housing, residence permits and visas.

The semester starts in mid-August.

If you are offered admission but are unable to start your studies this year, you may in some cases apply for a deferment of your study offer.
