Tuition fees

Tuition fees for students from outside the EU/EEA

Regulations and exemptions

On November 29, 2022, the Norwegian Government approved a budget that included charging tuition fees for students from outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland. For BI Norwegian Business School this means that these students who are admitted starting in 2023 must be prepared to pay an additional 30% of the base tuition fee. Please note that the increase does not apply to exchange students from our partner universities or students currently enrolled in a study programme at BI with a study contract.

How to apply for an exemption?

Some applicants will be exempt from paying the additional 30% of the tuition fees based on residence in Norway or other close connections with Norway. Applications are processed based on the universities and colleges act, as well as national regulations on education support. Details about the process for providing documentation and information about which documentation is needed to approve an exemption will be published in due course.
