The Norwegian Minister of Education has announced that fees must be introduced for students from countries outside the EU. This was announced for the varsities to cover the costs per foreign student. Thus, third-country citizens who wish to continue their higher education studies in the EU must pay the fees starting from the autumn semester of 2023.
Norway will be open to students from all countries but must pay for themselves. Education will remain free for Norwegian students and those coming from EEA countries and Switzerland. Education will also be free for exchange students.
Many people want to take higher education but Norwegian students will be given priority. The government of Norway has proposed a budget of NOK 42.8 billion for the funding of colleges and universities in 2023.
However, Universities and colleges are encouraged to find other ways to secure income as inflation has hit globally. The Norwegian government has also increased the framework for dormitory costs throughout the country in the 2023 budget for education.
Also, an extra NOK 85 million will be spent on adjusting student aid. NOK141.5 million will be allocated for a subsidy scheme in student housing for energy measures and an extra NOK 41.1 million is allocated to cancel student debt.
