Financing your studies

Financing your studies

NHH is a publicly funded university and charges therefore no application or tuition fees for students from EU/EEA/Switzerland.

As a student at NHH you are required to pay a small semester registration fee to the Student Welfare Organisation in Bergen (Sammen),  which allows you to benefit from their services. The amount is currently approximately NOK 800 per semester.

Some international applicants must document their financial ability in order to be granted a residence permit to study in Norway.

Tuition fee for students from outside EU, EEA and switzerland

From the autumn semester of 2023, students from countries outside the EU, EEA and Switzerland must be prepared to pay tuition fees.

The Norwegian government has proposed that all students who are admitted to full degree programmes and are from outside the above-mentioned regions must pay tuition fees, on the condition that a required amendment to the Norwegian Universities Act is adopted by the Norwegian parliament. This process is scheduled to start in April and concluded in May or June.  

How much will the fee be?

184 000 NOK per academic year, for students who start in August 2023.


Exemptions are subject to change.

Details to be announced

Further information on the fees, how to pay, and possible exemptions will be posted on this page as soon as possible.
