Students applying for a residence permit for studies (study permit) must provide documentation in accordance with the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration's requirements, proving that they are able to sustain themselves while studying in Norway. Applicants must be prepared to transfer means of subsistence (currently 137 907 NOK for one academic year), in addition to the annual tuition fee, to the University of Agders' bank account. The means of subsistence is a deposit and will be transferred back to you once you have opened a Norwegian bank account.
Admitted international applicants living outside the EU/EEA will receive an invoice covering both the means of subsistence and the tuition fee. The invoice will be made available at Application Web.
Other admitted applicants must contact UiA at firstname.lastname@example.org to get their invoice for the annual tuition fee.
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.
