For two years, the pandemic has reduced exchange opportunities abroad for Norwegian students. Now, there is a renewed interest in exchange programs abroad. 

“We see that a lot of Norwegians want to go abroad to study. Among other things, there is significant pressure on ANSA’s information center for studies abroad,” Sine Schei, president of the student organization ANSA, told the newspaper VG.

The vast majority of universities and colleges in Norway canceled their exchange programs when the pandemic closed the world just over two years ago.

The situation at NHH

More than half of the students at the Norwegian School of Management (NHH) tend to spend part of their education abroad in normal years, and just before the pandemic, a record number went abroad. After two years of low numbers, the exchange figures at the NHH are now more or less back to normal.

“It is great that we are back at that level. Not only because it gives the students an important experience, but also because it is a signal that the state of emergency is over,” vice-rector for education at NHH, Stig Tenold, noted.

This year, NHH students are applying primarily for programs in Europe.
