Semester programme in nursing

Bachelor's course
For exchange students

The semester programme in nursing welcomes students enrolled in a bachelor's programme in nursing. The programme emphasises evidence-based public health work, particularly health promotion and preventive efforts in community health services. You will also learn about prevention and treatment of malnutrition, and gain awareness of how technological developments might impact your future profession as a nurse.

  • Admission requirements

    You must be admitted to a bachelor's programme in the field of health or social sciences at your home university.

    Students from other fields of study with a particular interest in the courses can in some cases be admitted based on an extra motivation letter. Please contact us in advance of applying.

  • How to apply

    International exchange students select courses when applying for exchange.

    Application deadline: 1 October.

  • Course description

    During the programme you will be able to visit a community health service together with your main study group.

    Note that the courses in the semester programme are also offered to students from other health and social sciences, so many of the groups will be interdisciplinary.

    OsloMet houses the largest nursing research environment, and the largest bachelor's degree in nursing in Norway.

    During the courses you will participate in large-scale class teachings, but also be placed in fixed smaller study groups with both local students and other exchange students.

    You will participate in theoretical courses together with local nursing students and other exchange students.

    The majority of the courses are part of the fourth semester of the bachelor programme in nursing at OsloMet – but you are welcome to join us regardless of which semester you are in at your home university.

  • Costs
