Norwegian Quota Scholarship
2016 for Bangladeshi Students
As a student, you must apply directly from
your home country. You must have stayed at
least one year in your home country directly
prior to the planned course of study at the
Norwegian university /university college.
To be eligible to apply for the Quota Scheme,
you must be able to find your home country
on this list.
All candidates should typically have the following
basic qualifications: Secondary school certificates
or a minimum two years of higher education
from their home country. Some exceptions apply
for certain professional educational courses
at Bachelor's level.
Most of the study programs offered under the
Quota Scheme are taught in English. Applicants
who are not native English speakers therefore
must document their proficiency in English.
Requirements may differ between institutions
and various study programs. Please see the
university/university college's website for
more details about language requirements.
Each student receives the same amount of money
as a Norwegian student would do in an equivalent
educational program. About 30 per cent of
the amount is given as a grant and 70 per
cent as a loan. However, the loan portion
is waived when the student returns to his/her
home country after completing the course of
study. Normally, the financial support will
not not exceed a time span of four years for
one definite study plan, or a combination
of two programs.
Travelling expenses for entry
into Norway can be reimbursed (fixed price).
Students can apply for one annual home visit
if the educational program lasts more than
one year, as well as financial support for
travelling expenses for field work during
the course of study. When the student returns
home within 3 months after finishing the course,
the cost of travelling home is covered by
the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund.
The Quota Scheme as a rule only enrolls students
from institutions which have collaboration
agreements with Norwegian universities or
university colleges. Norwegian institutions
usually do not admit free movers (individual
applicants) to this scheme. Only in very special
cases can free movers be considered. To find
out which institutions collaborate with Norwegian
institutions, please refer to the websites
of the Norwegian institutions. The start date(s)
of application vary from institution to institution
while the deadline for applying for the Quota
scheme is usually 01 December every year.
Some courses and educational programs may
have other deadlines than this. Please contact
the International Office at the university/college
to which you want to apply for detailed information.
