Instructions for funds transfer

International students must document sufficient funds in order to apply for a study permit in Norway. After being accepted at NMBU, new students must transfer funds to a Norwegian bank account. To facilitate the transfer of funds, the university offers a service whereby funds can be transferred to a bank account administrated by NMBU.

Instructions for funds transfer

For the study year 2019-2020 the immigrations authorities require documentation of financing in the amount of NOK 121 220. Double degree students studying only one semester at NMBU, can transfer funds for the relevant semester. The financing amount is NOK 55 100 for the autumn semester in 2019 and 66 120 for the spring semester in 2020. If the student does not currently reside in Norway, the primary method to document sufficient funds to the immigration authorities is by transferring funds to a Norwegian bank account in the student's name. Contact your nearest Norwegian Embassy/Consulate for further information or read the UDI pages. The student shall bear transaction costs charged by all banks. The university will provide confirmation once the funds are received in Norway for the study permit application.

Access to funds after arrival in Norway
Once the student has arrived in Norway, a cheque will be prepared to cover the initial costs until the student can open a bank account. Once the student has obtained a Norwegian personal number, the student can open a bank account. All the funds (minus any bank charges) will be transferred to this bank account. This whole process can take several weeks. For non-degree students who intend to stay in Norway for less than 6 months and cannot open a bank account, the university can make alternate arrangements for accessing the funds after the initial cheque.
