Each year SIU has available 30 scholarships for Russian student interested in studying in Norway for a semester or two.
The total amount of available student grants annually is 30, 15 within Norwegian language and literature, 15 within other subjects. The grants can be awarded to students and academic staff at Russian institutions of higher education. Admission of a student for a two-year programme implies that the student is counted as grant recipient for two years, reducing the number of available grants the following year.
Grants are offered at the following institutions:
- Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences
- UiT The Arctic University of Norway (merged with Narvik University College)
- University of Bergen
- Nord University (previously University of Nordland)
- University of Oslo
- Norwegian University of Science and Technology
What does the grant cover?
The students will not pay study fees (except a semester fee of approximately NOK 600 per semester). The students will receive a monthly grant equivalent to the rate for Norwegian students at the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (“Lånekassen”). As per January 2018, this is NOK 10 825 per month.
Travel costs are not covered (ref. Article 6 in the agreement).
The students will normally be offered student accommodation, for which they pay the rent out of their grant (usually NOK 2 500 – 4 500 monthly).
For summer school participants there are special rates, where accommodation, meals, book support and pocket money is included.
