    You will receive an invoice with IBAN and SWIFT information from OsloMet with sufficient time to pay the tuition fee before the academic year starts. Please note that if someone else is paying the fee for you, you need to put your full name as reference on the payment. 

    The fee must be paid in Norwegian currency (Norwegian Krone). Contact your local bank to find the exchange rate between the Norwegian krone and your country’s currency.

    Unfortunately, OsloMet does not currently offer any scholarships or loans. There are currently no national scholarships available either.
