As the higher education institutions in Norway are all coming to terms with the increasing numbers of refugees coming to Norway, new approaches to foreign academic credential recognition and easier access to study courses are being addressed.
University College of Southeast Norway (formerly known as HBV) wishes to contribute to the succesful integration process of refugees coming to Norway.

The guide aims to provide an orientation to the refugees about the Norwegian higher education system (funding, admission to undergraduate studies, admission to graduate studies, recognition of foreign credentials etc.).
