Norway is a great place to get your education. Although it's cold - and they did go through a "butter crisis" in 2011 - Norway has some of the highest-ranked universities, the best student accommodations, and the most boring TV shows (train rides, knitting, and log fires, oh my).
But, going back to the highest-ranked and the best universities, you should know that Norwegian organisations, like the University of Bergen, can be great magnets for international students from all over the world.
Norway is a paradise for anyone who wants to study abroad for free. Public universities don’t charge any tuition fees. This policy applies to all international students, regardless of their nationality. The academic standard is very high, and professors are easy to approach, always willing to go the extra mile for their students. Additionally, classes are organised in small groups, which further improves learning and cooperation.
You can choose from a wide range of English-taught programmes, and you don’t need to worry about language barriers outside of classes either, because most Norwegians speak English as a second language. Internationals should find it easy to adapt to Norway’s society, which is based on equality and fair opportunities — reflected both in the legal system and in people’s behaviour.
