Requirements for programmes of study at NMBU

NMBU is responsible for the quality of all studies offered at the University and that the studies offered at the university and that the studies at all times meet all requirements of the Ministry of Education and the NOKUT regulations and in the NMBU regulations. In addition, institutional guidelines and requirements are laid down in strategies and plans. There are therefore a number of frameworks that require content, structure and description of study programs, requirements for the academic environment around the program, requirements for the subjects included in the program and a number of other matters.
