Every summer from late June to early August it welcomes some 500 students from all over the world to its wide variety of graduate and undergraduate courses, mostly within the liberal arts and social sciences.
There are a number of International Summer School Scholarships available at University of Oslo, Norway.
The scholarships vary in value according to the documented need and resources of the individual applicant and the regulations pertaining to the scholarship fund in question.
Apart from pocket money, which may be granted to applicants from countries with fixed currency restrictions, the value of the scholarship is applied directly to the ISS fees and is not payable in cash.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic and personal qualifications and financial need.
Demands for Scholarship Recipients:
Scholarship recipients are obliged to take a full program of courses and to sit final examinations and/or write term papers.
Applicants from developing countries in Africa, Asia and South America can apply for ISS scholarships for graduate courses.
There are no scholarships available in this category for undergraduate courses.
Admission to graduate courses requires at least that the candidate has completed a Bachelor's degree in a relevant field. As a result, all applicants for scholarship from developing countries must have completed a Bachelor's degree.
To apply for this scholarship category, applicants must make sure that they qualify for graduate courses, and submit the ISS scholarship application form in addition to the ISS general application form.
The scholarship application form can be requested by sending an e-mail to the ISS.
Applicants are provided an answer on their scholarship application in April/May.
