Studyportals International Student Satisfaction Awards 2016 – Norway


Also this year, many students have reviewed their experiences of studying at a different university. Based on these reviews, Studyportals has created the International Student Satisfaction Awards. These awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe.

Many students that went to study in Norway have shared their experience. A total of 181 students left a review of their experience in Norway, with an overall satisfaction grade of 9.3, ranking 1st in this year’s award session! 18 different schools have been reviewed, of which 3 universities are awarded. A university is eligible for an award when having an average student satisfaction of at least 8 out of 10 based on a minimum of 20 reviews.

Unlike university rankings, Studyportals’ International Student Satisfaction Awards are based on thousands of reviews and opinions from international students in Europe. We created three award categories to distinguish between levels of satisfaction:

  • Award for Very Good International Student Satisfaction: at least 8.0 out of 10
  • Award for Excellent International Student Satisfaction: between 9.0 and 9.4 out of 10
  • Award for Outstanding International Student Satisfaction: at least 9.5 out of 10

3 Norwegian universities received an award:

Reviews Score Award
University of Oslo 26 9.5+ Outstanding
Norwegian University of Science and Technology 41 9+ Excellent
University of Bergen 35 9+ Excellent

What international students say about studying in Norway:

It was the best, best, best time of my life! It’s amazing how 6 months in Norway can change your life. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone. Norway is still – and always will be – my ‘happy place’.
