Nomination Service

Nomination process for partner institutions

NMBU's partner institutions who are registered with one or more accounts will receive an e-mail with a username and instructions for how to use the service before it opens in August/March. Partners who need to be registered as a new user in the system, please contact us at

Step 1 - Log in

Please log in to NMBU's Online Nominations Web.

  • Username: Your username is your email-address.
  • Password: To log in the first time you must order the password from the log in page. Enter your e-mail address (the same as you received the NMBU email to) and click on "Send password".

Step 2 - Choose relevant agreement

After log in you will see the agreements your institution has with NMBU. Select the relevant agreement from the list and click on the button “Add new nomination” to nominate a student on the agreement.

Step 3 - Register nominated students

Please take care to enter the student's information correctly:

  • e-mail address
  • gender
  • birth date (in the format YYYY.MM.DD)
  • term(s) for admission (one or two semesters)

After completing the student's information, click on "Add Nomination" to save the data. After approx. 30 minutes the system will send a confirmation e-mail to the nominated student's e-mail address, and a copy to you. If you wish to cancel the nomination of the student, no e-mail will be sent if you cancel by clicking on the delete button within 30 minutes.


Step 4 - Upload relevant documents

We encourage partners to upload the student's relevant documents in the nomination process, but the student can also upload the documents when applying.

The students must complete the application online before:

  • 1 April (outside Europe) or 1 June (European students) for studies starting in the the autumn semester (August - December or August - June)
  • 1 October for studies starting in the spring semester (January - June).

For further information about deadlines, relevant documents and practical matters, please see the website of your nominated students' exchange program:

Step 5 - Add more students

Complete Steps 2 and 3 for each student your institution is nominating to the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. Once you have added a nomination, see the list of students you have nominated, and their status.

You may now see the details and upload documents for each student you have nominated, by clicking on the button "Documents and Details", or nominate more students.

You may log in again later to upload more documents and to check the application status of your nominated students.

After nomination

E-mail to students: When you have finished the nomination, the students you have nominated will receive an email from NMBU confirming that they have been nominated by your institution. The students will be given further instructions for completing their application in NMBU online application service for students (SøknadsWeb).

Student application status: You can keep track of each student's status by logging in on the online nomination service any time. On the “Available agreements and admission” webpage you may see all relevant agreements and the application status of your nominated students; nominated, applied, admission granted, withdrawn etc. You may also upload further documents for each student.

Letters of Admission to the students will be sent out from the beginning of November for the Spring semester and from the middle of June for the Autumn semester.
