USN will be welcoming students from all our international partners, for Spring semester 2021. All our study exchange and degree programmes are currently planning to run as normal. Kindly note that all incoming practice placements/internships are cancelled for Spring 2021. Also note that USN has no housing guarantee and that student dormitories are very limited for Spring 2021.


Please note that USN is monitoring the situation and that this might be subject to change. All partners and students will be informed accordingly.

Kindly note that all incoming practice placements/internships are cancelled for Spring 2021. This goes for international students applying for placements in the health care, as well as schools, industry and private businesses.

Students should be aware that the Student welfare services (SSN) does not guarantee on-campus student housing for international students Spring 2021. All international students who would like to stay in SSN student dormitories must apply for student housing directly with SSN. Please note that this is a separate process from the student application process. International students should submit their applications through SSN within October 15th for the spring semester. More students should be advised to turn to private housing providers off campus, where it is possible to rent a room or a small apartment. Check out airbnb or Finn.no for private housing.

Students should also be aware of the quarantine regulations, set by the Norwegian health authorities, that implies entry quarantine in to Norway. You can find more information at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.

Students who require a study permit to Norway should also take into consideration that the processing of visa applications and registrations with the police might take longer than usual. More information can be found on udi.no.

Outgoing mobility from USN to international partners:

Due to the current situation, USN has unfortunately decided to cancel all outgoing study mobility outside Europe, for Spring semester 2021. Students will have the opportunity to apply for study abroad/exchange within the Nordic and European countries.

Any questions, please feel free to contact international@usn.no.
