Educational services for refugees
The Norwegian Ministry of Education has provided funds for educational services for refugees affected by the war in Ukraine. Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences now offers studies in English and in Norwegian language and culture. The studies are each worth 30 credits and can be combined.
The target group for the studies are refugees with a residence permit according to chapter 4 § 34 (collective protection) or § 28 (individual asylum) of the Immigration Act, who want to learn better Norwegian or English.
Application deadline is the 15th of October.
As a refugee with a residence permit and who lives in a municipality, you can apply for admission to a study programme and be entitled to a loan and a scholarship for higher education in Norway. You can also access and use INN University's campuses.
Refugees from Ukraine are granted collective protection when they arrive in Norway, which means that they receive a residence and work permit in this country.
Collective protection also means that rights are triggered within county municipal areas of responsibility such as upper secondary education, career guidance for adults, dental health, and school transport.
