The staff at the Department of Political Science informed about the application of Breivik.
– Should Breivik receive an offer of admission, his prison conditions dictate that he can not come to campus or have any contact with students or staff at the University, says Rector Ole Petter Ottersen.
Breivik had apllied in 2013 study political science at the University of Oslo but he was rejected because he had failed to meet general admission criteria. Since then, he has taken the missing subjects by taking up subjects from high school in prison.
All inmates in Norwegian prisons are entitled to pursue higher education in Norway, if they meet the admission requirements.
