University ambitions

One of our primary goals is to establish an internationally competitive and regionally based multi-campus university.


USN submitted an application for accreditation to NOKUT (Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education) 2nd of March 2017. If NOKUT recommends accreditation, HSN will submit a formal application for university accreditation to the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

Once the merged institution is approved as a university, the institution will be established under the name University of Southeast Norway.
