Check our Study Catalogue for more information regarding the programs offered at the University of Stavanger. You may apply for up to five programs for admission to master programs and further studies. Some programs have specialisations, where each specialisations is listed as a program in the admission portal.

It is possible to apply for up to three subject didactics in the application to PPU.

Read the academic requirements carefully for each programme you are applying to before starting your application. The academic requirements can be found under the admission requirements section of each programme in the Study Catalogue. The admission office does not have the capacity to evaluate credentials prior to application. If you think you are eligible, we encourage you to apply.

Some programs require minimum grade point average of the education qualifying you for admission, which is usually your bachelor's degree. A minimum requirement of C on the ECTS grading scale mean that you must meet 2,5 in our conversion scale from ECTS letter grades to numerical values. Some programs may have higher requirements. Read more information here how we calculate the grade point average for local applicants with a bachelor's degree from Norway.

If your education is from a country that uses a different grading system, we will

make a discretionary assessment.

To qualify for study programmes taught in Norwegian, you need to meet the Norwegian and English requirements as the programmes that you apply for through Samordna opptak. The admission to programmes taught in English may require higher level of English if you need to document an approved test. Read more about the language requirements.

Which documents you are required to upload may vary on the admission requirements to the programme. Remember to check the admission requirements to a programmes before applying, and upload the documents to your application. How to document education, work experience and other documents relevant to the admission can be found on our website for documentation requirements for local applicants.
