There are Norwegian government scholarships and national programmes that offer scholarships and funding for international students wishing to study in Norway.
Most Norwegian institutions have various bilateral agreements with foreign institutions of higher education.
These agreements are usually designed for the mutual exchange of students, researchers and teachers. However, there are national programmes that offer scholarships and other types of funding for international students wishing to study in Norway.
Certain restrictions and prerequisites apply for all these programmes. In addition, there are various stipends available offered by private and non-profit organisations.
Erasmus Mundus Study in Norway Scholarship
Erasmus Mundus Masters & PhD Courses are high-quality study programmes at masters & PhD levels offered by a consortium of at least three European higher education institutions.

Students have to study in at least two institutions. Erasmus Mundus scholarships are available for students who have been admitted to an Erasmus Mundus Masters or PhD Course.
Norway Scholarships: Quota Scheme
The Norwegian government provides scholarships for students from developing countries through the Quota Scheme.
The objective of the scheme is to promote the internationalisation of higher education. Currently, the scheme provides full scholarships for a total of 800 students from developing countries.
Each year universities and university colleges in Norway are allocated a certain number of quota students.
The scheme normally includes courses taught in English at Masters and Ph.D. level, in addition to certain professional degrees. In order to find out which courses are available under the scheme, please contact the institutions directly.
