How to apply
Applying to GUC to earn a bachelor degree is easy by using the centralized application processing centre called NUCAS, the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service (Samordnet opptak). Applications for international master's and the PhD programme are made directly to the university. Note that the Norwegian admission system is primarily for Norwegian citizens and others with a permanent or renewable residence permit.
All exchange students must apply through their home university. The application should include a letter of intent, 1 passport photo, an academic transcript (in English) and a letter of recommendation from your home university. Please contact the International Office at your university to start the application process.

Who can apply?
Students from partner universities, with which we have exchange agreements, will be given first priority when applying for admittance to our study programmes. Students from universities without an exchange agreement with Gjøvik University College may apply provided they have the necessary academic background for the programme in question, and meet the English language requirements.
Student visa / Residence permit
Have you been accepted? You have to apply for a student visa through the nearest Norwegian embassy or consulate. Make sure that you enclose a certified copy of the acceptance letter from Gjøvik University College. You must not leave for Norway until you have been granted a student visa. This is a time consuming process, so do not delay applying.
