International Talents are Wasted in Norway

79 percent of over 1,000 international master students who took their degree in Norway in the period of 2007-2011 had to go back to their home country.

– It is bad economics for Norway in a time where we must do everything to attract the best expertise, says strategic adviser of Abelia – Association of Science and Technology, Tarje Bjørgum.

– At any given time there are 15,000 international students in Norway, but little is done to get them to stay after their studies. It is wrong to educate them and then send them back to their home country in order to compete against us in the market, says Bjørgum to DN.
