Academic Approval

Students who have a relevant education background may be able to have previous education approved at BI Norwegian Business School. BI has three types of approval. ​​

​Applications for course-by-course exemptions that are dismissed or rejected can be appealed.

​Deadline for appeal

The appeal must be sent in writing within three weeks from the time the rejection was communicated to the applicant. The appeal must be factually based, and we recommend attaching further relevant information. The appeal must be addressed to the decision unit.

In the event the appeal is not fully allowed by the resolution unit, the resolution unit must forward the case to the Appeals Committee at BI Norwegian Business School.

Formal structured appeal letter

We recommend a formally structured appeal letter. See template here (in Norwegian).

You should allow for a long processing time by the Appeals Committee.
