Norwegian students and permanent residents in Norway are covered by the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme (Folketrygden), when granted financial support from the State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen).
All students must purchase student insurance that covers the entire stay abroad.
A student insurance should cover extra costs related to sickness or accidents, theft, personal travel, and transportation home in case of serious illness or injuries.
Some universities may also require that you buy their student insurance regardless of an existing insurance. Please read the conditions carefully! Any additional costs related to this must be paid by the student.
