According to the official Norwegian web site, www.studyinnorway.no: “Living expenses in Norway are considered to be higher than in many other countries. Living in Norway has a reputation for being expensive, but studying in Norway may not be as expensive as you think! Universities in Norway and state university colleges as a rule do not charge tuition fees for international students.”

True, amongst countries of equal status, living expenses in Norway is more expensive, and you need to pay for your own study materials (books/teaching). NOK 300-600 ($50-100) fees per semester, varies on school, may be required. Although official average student expenditure of about NOK 9000 (approx.
