PART I

UPPER SECONDARY EDUCATION

Admission to upper secondary education in Norway

As of the school year 1994-95, all young people aged 16 to 19, who had completed primary and lower secondary education or the equivalent, were provided with a statutory right to 3 years of upper secondary education leading to either:

entrance qualifications for higher education,

a trade or journeyman’s certificate 1Trade or journeyman’s certificate is normally obtained after two years at school and two years of apprenticeship training.,

other vocational qualifications,

partial qualifications (Reform 94).

For the purposes of this brochure “equivalent” means foreign education equivalent to 10 years of primary and lower secondary education both with regard to extent and level.

All young people aged 16 to 19 have a statutory right to upper secondary education. As of the school year 2000-2001 adults born prior to 1978 are entitled to upper secondary education and training, if they haven’t completed this education at an earlier stage.

The Education Act applies to all pupils and apprentices, as well as immigrants 2The term immigrants includes pupils and apprentices who have another mother tongue than Norwegian, Sami, Danish or Swedish. (refugees, people seeking asylum) who hold a valid residence permit for Norway, whether this is permanent or temporary. Also, some provisions of the Act have been designed for the latter group in particular:

A valid residence permit is needed in order for refugees and immigrants to be admitted to upper secondary education. Single minors applying for asylum may be admitted to upper secondary education while they are waiting for their application to be processed, but they are not entitled to complete the school year if their application for residence is rejected.

According to the EEA Agreement, young immigrants living in Norway have the same right as the country’s nationals to upper secondary education, provided that their parents are citizens of a member country and are or have been employed in such a country.

The county municipality will provide you with more information

Individual assessment

Applicants without qualifications corresponding to the school-leaving certificate from Norwegian compulsory education, are assessed individually. This provision applies both to applicants aged 16 to 19, adult with a statutory right to upper secondary education and to those who are not covered by the statutory right.

Upon admission to upper secondary education, no category of immigrants is required to document their knowledge of the Norwegian language.

Adaptation and special needs education

With a view to adaptation and special needs education, the same provisions apply to immigrants as to Norwegian pupils and apprentices.

When an applicant has been admitted to upper secondary education, the county municipality is responsible for adapting the education to the pupil’s specific needs.

When applicants have been admitted to upper secondary education, the school or training establishments shall ensure that the training is planned, carried out and assessed according to the current Education Act and regulations.

Individuals with a right to special needs education, according to the Education Act, and based on an expert opinion, are entitled to extended education for up to two years.

Recognition of foreign education at upper secondary level

Admission to upper secondary school

As far as admission to upper secondary school is concerned, each county municipality is responsible for recognising foreign qualifications.

The county municipality will provide you with more information

Recognition of completed foreign vocational education and training, under the Education Act

Persons who apply to have a completed foreign vocational qualification recognised as equivalent to the Norwegian qualification for the relevant subject/trade should direct their inquiries to the County Vocational Training Board. The board will then carry out a qualified assessment and in some cases consult the relevant training council for expert opinion before submitting their considered findings, in which the candidate’s qualifications are approved or rejected, to the National Education Office of the county. In each county there is a National Education Office 3The counties Oslo and Akershus have one office in common. which is the competent authority to decide on such matters.

Foreign qualifications must be documented by officially certified copies of the trade or journeyman’s certificate, and if the education has been provided at school, by a school-leaving certificate. An authorised translator (e.g. at the embassy) must translate all documentation into Norwegian. Further documentation of the contents of the training (e.g. a study programme) may also be required.

If satisfactory documentation of a completed foreign vocational qualification cannot be made available, applicants may apply for partial equivalence of their practical experience/vocational theory, in order to register for a Norwegian trade or journeyman’s examination. Information on remaining theory/practice can be obtained from the Vocational Training Board.

The county municipality will provide you with more information

Recognition of foreign practical experience/vocational theory related to registration for the trade or journeyman’s examination.

Pupils/apprentices who have practical experience or who have begun their vocational training in a foreign country will be able to have their qualifications recognised if the education/training is related to the same subject/trade as is offered in Norwegian upper secondary education. The County Vocational Training Board is responsible for assessing which parts of the education/training are lacking compared to the same education/training in Norway.

Education from a foreign country may be recognised completely or partially as equivalent to the obligatory theoretical requirements for the trade or journeyman’s examination, making registration for the theoretical part of the examination unnecessary.

It is possible to sit at trade or journeyman’s examination on the basis of sufficient broad working experience of a trade of duration 25 per cent longer than the stipulated apprenticeship period. The County authorities, as represented by the county vocational education training board, decides whether the working experience stated by the applicant can be approved, and may in special cases approve periods of experience shorter than indicated above.

Contact the Vocational Training Board in each county municipality for more information

Testing of work-related competence

In order to simplify the process of assessing foreign vocational training taken by immigrants living in Norway who are unable to submit documentation of their qualifications, competence testing has been initiated at an experimental stage. The competence testing will test the applicant’s formal, informal and non-formal learning.

This arrangement is not meant to replace regular trade or journeyman’s examinations, but is intended to provide a method for assessing whether foreign vocational training qualifies for:

Accreditation of period of education/training

Accreditation of theory

Accreditation of practical experience for registration for the trade or journeyman’s examination

It is presupposed that the present study programmes will be used in the preparations of work related competence testing.

PART II HIGHER EDUCATION

Admission to universities/colleges

The general admission requirements are the same for all higher education institutions. More details concerning the requirements to prior education are obtainable from the individual university, college (“høgskole”) or The Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education, NOKUT.

In general, applicants with foreign qualifications must be able to present documentation of completed education equivalent to a Norwegian 3-year upper secondary education or training. In addition, command of the Norwegian language must be documented through special tests.

The language requirements are:

examination in Norwegian As a Second Language, obtaining the grade “3” in the written test and “4” in the oral test

or

examination from The Introductory or Preparatory Programme For Foreign Students, obtaining grade “3” or better

or

test in Norwegian at an advanced level (“The Bergen Test”) for immigrants 4The term immigrants includes students who have another mother tongue than Norwegian, Sami, Danish or Swedish. (refugees, people seeking asylum), obtaining a minimum of 450 points

or

examination from The One-Year Programme in Norwegian Language and Civilisation for Foreign Students, achieving the grade “3” or better.

Other forms of documentation of Norwegian language proficiency can be accepted, such as having Norwegian or another Nordic language as mother tongue, or examinations from studies in Norwegian at a university or college abroad. Students who are admitted to study programmes that are taught in English, or students participating in European exchange programmes, do not have to fulfil these language requirements in Norwegian.

Applicants with a 3-year upper secondary education from an other Nordic country which satisfies the admission criteria to universities and colleges in their home country, will also qualify for admission in Norway.

An International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) satisfies the general admission requirements.

In some areas of study, for instance medicine or technological studies, there are specific admission requirements in addition to general criteria. More information about these can be obtained by contacting the institution concerned directly.

Previously, separate documentation of English language proficiency was necessary for admission to the universities. There is no such rule in the new regulation concerning general admission requirements to higher education. The present requirement is that the applicants’ prior education must be equivalent to Norwegian upper secondary education, and knowledge of English is part of this.

Recognition of foreign degrees and qualifications

According to The Act on Universities and Colleges 5The Act No. 22 of 12 May 1995 on Universities and Colleges, the higher education institutions are themselves responsible for the recognition of foreign higher education qualifications (section 48).

Applications concerning the recognition of a foreign degree or qualification as equivalent to a Norwegian degree, a completed profession, another study programme or parts of a study programme should be forwarded to NOKUT, which again will further it to the appropriate institution in Norway (see List of Addresses). If the degree is approved, the applicant will be entitled to use the corresponding Norwegian title. This provision applies to persons who have completed their education and who primarily do not intend to continue their studies in Norway. The universities and colleges will give more information.

Recognition of a degree or other qualification does not automatically give the right to practice a profession which is regulated by law. For that, an authorisation is required, see page 9, “ Professional titles and authorisation”.

Credit transfer

The question of credit transfer arises in cases where an applicant has completed only part of a degree or study or study programme at an institution of higher education (abroad), or has only been granted partial equivalence for a foreign degree. This also applies to study programmes which do not lead to a degree. The evaluation of education and training as part of a Norwegian degree should be decided by each university or college, see The Universities and Colleges Act, section 48.

Each institution is also responsible for evaluating qualifications for the transfer of credit for applicants who want to continue their studies in Norway. Applications should be sent via NOKUT.

Information can be obtained from the universities and colleges.

Professional titles and authorisation

Certain occupations are protected by law, so that, to be able to practise, an authorisation is necessary in addition to the educational requirements.

Prior to any final recognition of a foreign qualification in such protected professions, the applicant will in many cases be required to pass an additional examination.

Applications for authorisation should be sent to the competent authorities, as follows (the list is not complete):

Physician, dentist, psychologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, medical laboratory technician, nurse, midwife:

Norwegian Registration Authority for Health Personnel

General teacher, special subject teacher, pre-school teacher, secondary school teacher (lower (“adjunkt”) or higher (“lektor”) university or college degree plus one year of educational theory and practice)

The National Education Offices (Regional commisioner )
/ The Ministry of Education and Research.

Lawyer

The Supervisory Council for Legal Practise

Veterinarian

The Ministry of Agriculture

Auditor

The Banking, Insurance and Securities Commission

All maritime positions that require a certificate, such as sea captain, deck officer, maritime engineer

The Norwegian Maritime Directorate

Other occupations such as social worker and engineer, are not protected by law. Information concerning the evaluation of these professions may be obtained from the appropriate institutions of higher education.

Documentation

The following documentation must be included in applications for recognition of foreign educational qualifications, if at all obtainable 6In cases where a student has not got any documents to submit due to special circumstances, each case will be considered individually.,:

Officially certified copies of transcripts and certificates from education corresponding to upper secondary school (concerns applications for admission to higher education).

Officially certified copies of transcripts, certificates, diplomas and degrees from the education the applicant is submitting for recognition.

Detailed information on the content of the studies: course descriptions, reading lists for each course, list of papers, theses and/or publications, description of types of instruction and examinations, grading system, etc. Such information is often available in the catalogues ( syllabuses) published by foreign education institutions.

All documentation must be submitted with a certified translation to English or one of the Nordic languages (preferably Norwegian).
