Kristiania University College offers tuition-free degrees to refugees
Kristiania will offer refugees full participation in several study programmes that lead to university degrees on the Bachelor’s- and Master’s levels - completely free of charge.
The war in Ukraine has led to unmeasurable suffering, causing millions to flee their homeland in search of safety.
One of the many consequences of armed conflict and despotism is the lapse in education. Students on all levels lose the possibility to study and enhance their skillsets when faced with war. This has serious consequences for the future of Ukraine.
As a token of solidarity with Ukraine, starting this autumn 2022 Kristiania will offer to Ukrainian refugees full participation in several study programmes that lead to university degrees on the Bachelor’s- and Master’s levels - completely free of charge.
However, you do not need Ukrainian citizenship. The offer is applied to all with refugee status in Norway no matter their nationality.
Do you have refugee status in Norway?
The study programmes offered under this initiative, listed below, are fully taught in English at Kristiania’s downtown campus in Oslo. You’ll have the option to study either full-time or part-time, depending on your needs and schedule.
If you are not sure which degree is best for you, please contact our Student Admissions Office through this online form. They will assist you with any questions you may have.
