Tuition fees

Below you will find the tuition fees for the various Bachelor and Master programmes at BI Norwegian Business School.

BI Norwegian Business School is a self-owned, not-for-profit foundation whose sole focus is education and research. Any profit will be used to strengthen BI’s research and learning environment in accordance with the objectives of the school.

Tuition fees include lectures and standard examination fees. Relevant course literature for programmes is an additional cost. The Management Board of BI Norwegian Business School reserves the right to adjust tuition fees annually.

Tuition fees for students from outside the EU/EEA

On June 16, 2023 the government of Norway signed legislation which removed all government funding for tuition fees for international students with citizenship from outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland. As a result, BI Norwegian Business School will no longer receive a grant that contributed to the tuition fees for these students. Therefore, students from outside the EU/EEA/Switzerland must now pay the amount previously received from the government. The amount is 30% of the base tuition. The tuition fees are in effect for students starting their full-time studies in 2023.

Please note that increase does not apply to students enrolled as exchange students from our partner universities or students currently enrolled in a study programme at BI with a study contract.

Re-sit fee

The examination fee for the first exam attempt is normally included in the tuition fee.

Re-sit examinations are subject to a fee if there is no documentation of a legitimate absence from a previous exam within the specified deadlines or failure to withdraw a previous exam within the specified deadlines.

The re-sit fee is paid separately and is currently 280 NOK per credit point for the 2022/2023 academic year, and 298 NOK per credit point for the 2023/2024 academic year. 

Student Welfare Organisations

In addition to tuition fees, full-time students must pay a fee on your invoice for membership in The Student Welfare Organisation at your place of study. All full-time students in Oslo are obligated to pay this fee each semester. You will be reminded of this fee, and if you do not pay it will be submitted to debt collection.

Part-time students can choose to pay a membership to the Student Welfare Organisation:
