The University of Agder
The University of Agder has two campuses: Kristiansand (also called Gimlemoen) in Vest-Agder and Grimstad in Aust-Agder.
Norway underwent a comprehensive reform in 2003 called "Kvalitetsreformen" (the Quality Reform) which had a great effect on higher education. The implementation of the Quality Reform in Norway is to a great extent a result of the Bologna Process which started in 1999..
The University of Agder, like most universities and university colleges in Norway, established the Bologna degree structure of a three-year bachelor, 2-year master and 3-year PhD and adopted the European Credit Accumulation and Transfer System.
In 2004, we became the first institution in Norway and one of only 10 institutions in Europe to receive the ECTS label. We received the Diploma Supplement Label the same year.
