Special documentation requirements apply to certain countries. If you have education from one of these countries, your application will only be considered if you fulfil the requirements.

In addition to fulfilling the special documentation requirements, you need to upload your scanned copies to the online application form in SøknadsWeb.

Due to difficulties in verifying documents from certain countries, OsloMet might have to reject applicants from the following countries: Afghanistan, Congo DRC, Iraq, Liberia, Libya, Yemen, Sierra Leone and Somalia. Residents in Norway with education from the mentioned countries may contact NOKUT (nokut.no) for recognition of previous education.
