The National Union of Students in Norway (NSO in Norwegian) is the largest student organisation in Norway. It consists of 30 member unions from higher education institutions across the country, and represents approximately 230,000 students. The main goal of the National Union of Students in Norway is to ensure students’ academic, social and economic rights.
As NSO represents the vast majority of students in Norway, it is an important voice for all topics related and relevant to students. NSO representatives frequently meet with the Ministry of Education and members of parliament as well as being involved in many public boards and national councils within the field of higher education. NSO’s international representation of students is strongly related to their active membership at the European Students’ Union (ESU).
