Norwegian language course (NIS)


This one-year course aims to give students the knowledge and skills necessary for studies at Norwegian colleges and universities. The emphasis is on giving students good general proficiency in the Norwegian language. The course also aims to help students adapt to the Norwegian society. 

The Norwegian course is at undergraduate level and is split in two courses of 30 ECTS credits each (a total of 60 ECTS). See more information in the Programme description and course descriptions for NIS101 (autumn semester) and NIS102 (spring semester)..

To meet the general admission requirement and document proficiency in the Norwegian language, the student have to complete both NIS101 and NIS102.
