This means that those who plan to start their study in August 2023 will be required to pay tuition fee for their studies (on the condition that the required amendment to the Norwegian Universities Act will be adopted by the Storting, the Norwegian parliament, in May 2023).
The price per academic year (two semesters) for each programme is available at Tuition fees for the academic year 2023/2024 | University of Stavanger (uis.no) .
