Academic approval



Equivalent education from overseas

​(Equality assessment)

If you have completed studies from approved foreign higher education, you can apply for an equality assessment of said studies toward a specific degree at BI Norwegian Business School. Such an approval will give you the right to use the title set for such a degree.

​Reference is made to Regulations concerning admission, studies and examinations at BI Norwegian Business School, Section 2-1 Definition and Section 2-8 Professional approval of other education. The Board of BI Norwegian Business School sets the price of equality assessments toward degrees.

If you have previously had your education assessed for equivalency by other Norwegian education institutions, you can normally not have it assessed for equivalency again.

Can't you document your academic competence? 

If you are e.g. a refugee, and due to special circumstances cannot document your academic competence, you can also have your education assessed for equivalency at BI Norwegian Business School. Your education must be within BI’s disciplines, and you must personally familiarise yourself with our studies to have your education applied against a relevant degree. You will be tested in the subject areas
