Speak with a student
Sometimes the best way to get the answers you need, is to talk to someone who’s been in your shoes. Ask our current students about student life in Norway. Their past journey might be the fresh perspective you need to start yours.
Life at BI
Want to know what it’s like to be a student at BI? We’ve relaunched our student blog in a new layout. See what our students have to say about their own experiences.
- GUARANTEED HOUSING
BI is proud to offer a housing guarantee for international students. In cooperation with our housing providers, international students can choose from several different housing locations. To benefit from BI’s housing guarantee, you must submit a pre-application for housing at bi.edu/housing before May 1.
- STUDENT LIFE
Being a student is a growing and learning experience that reaches far beyond academic subjects. In addition to offering academic opportunities such as internships and exchange, we also offer guidance, counselling and services of various kinds related to student success and your well-being. During your studies you also have a lot of opportunities to meet new people and develop yourself, such as academic association and societies.
- SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Committed to supporting and promoting the most qualified academic applicants to its programmes, BI is pleased to offer several generous scholarship opportunities.
- HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
Norway has one of the best healthcare systems in the world. As an international student you have access to free health care services for students on campus. You are still advised to have insurance.
- INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
Being an international business school is visible across the organisation. For example, we have over 106 different nationalities represented amongst our students at BI and as much as 30% of our professional environment is international! We surround ourselves with the best people from all over the world.
- PART-TIME WORK
Your study permit is also a part-time work permit. As a student you are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during the semester and full-time during holidays. It’s not only a good way to earn some money, but also a very good way to get to know Norwegians and the culture.
