Funding for living expenses required for applying for a study permit
The funds covering your living expenses will be transferred back to you when you have set up a Norwegian bank account.
Admitted applicants must be prepared to transfer funds for living expenses (currently 137 907 NOK for one academic year), as well as the annual tuition fee, to the University of Agder.
This years' admitted applicants will receive an invoice for both the funds for your living expenses, and the tuition fee for the academic year 2023/2024. The invoice will be made available at Application Web. It will not be possible to pay in installments.
We recommend payment in NOK to ensure that the amount paid is correct.
If you pay in a currency other than NOK, the bank will convert it. However, fluctuations in exchange rates may mean that the amount we receive is not sufficient to cover the invoice amount.
We recommend paying a little extra in relation to the converted amount. You will get the excess back when we transfer the deposit.
In case your study permit is declined, or you choose to withdraw from your studies before 1 September, you can fill in an application form in order to get your payments refunded.
The university will refund the tuition fee and the funds for your living expenses to the bank account specified in the form. Please note that all refunds will be made in NOK. This means that the amount you receive will be subject to the exchange rates between NOK and your country’s currency, in addition to any fees your bank charges for international transfers.
Exemptions from paying tuition fees (subject to change)
Admitted students who fall under any of the exemption categories must apply for an exemption. Please read this page for more information about the criteria for exemptions from paying tuition fees, and how to document the basis for exemption.
