It is important to bear in mind that the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) requires that applicants for a Norwegian study permit document financial means. The current rate of NOK 123 519 (June 2020, subject to change) is intended to cover living expenses during one academic year and should be transferred to the deposit account as soon as possible after admission, latest by 1 August for the academic year 2020-2021. If you plan to stay for one semester, only half of the amount is required. This amount does not include your plane ticket to and from Norway but should include all costs once you arrive here (food, housing, books, entertainment, excursions, etc.).
