Matthew Rosenthal works with International Recruitment at BI Norwegian Business School. Here he tells us a bit more about the Business School and why Norway is an excellent choice for international students.
'BI Norwegian Business School is one of the top 50 business schools in Europe. Our modern campus is in Oslo, the capital city of Norway. We have small class sizes that encourage active participation and allow students and professors the opportunity to connect on a more personal level.'
‘We are a ‘triple crown’ accredited business school, which means that we have gained the three most important international accreditations. As such, our course materials are reviewed frequently to ensure the curriculum is relevant to working within the particular industry upon graduation. ‘Housing is guaranteed for international students, and we do not charge an application fee to apply. Each programme provides students the choice to do an internship or an exchange semester abroad.'
'We offer three bachelor’s degree programmes taught entirely in English:
'International students like the orientation week that begins their journey at BI. They appreciate all the activities and ability to meet other undergraduates who are starting at the same time as them. They also talk highly about the services that BI provides for them: career counselling, tutoring, networking and counselling. They speak about the accessibility to professors and how the class sizes are good. They also mention how much they appreciate the measures BI takes to try and incorporate them into the community of Oslo and academic community at BI.'
'We welcome students who have done Cambridge International qualifications. The curriculum they follow gives them a solid base for learning at an undergraduate level. They have built good study habits already, allowing a smoother transition into higher education. ‘We generally require three Cambridge International A Levels together with Cambridge IGCSE. There are no specific course requirements aside from completing a mathematics course if Data Science is the preferred degree programme. There are no grade requirements for entry into the undergraduate programmes.'
'Students who have taken Cambridge IGCSE English can be exempted from an English proficiency test if they achieve a grade B or above.'
'If Cambridge International students have any questions about admission requirements, they can email us and we will help them.'
'Studying in Norway might not be the typical route, but that is okay. We want students who are interested in a different experience. When you study in Norway you get the opportunity to access nature you may not be familiar with. Norwegian society places an importance on a healthy work/life balance so you will be learning in an environment that promotes this principle.'
'Studying abroad is an excellent way to learn different perspectives. When you choose a place to study, think about if you could see yourself living there after your studies because you never know who you will meet, what opportunities you will have and how your life can change from studying abroad.'
'BI Norwegian Business School is one of the top 50 business schools in all of Europe. As we are triple crown accredited, students do not have to worry about getting a quality, relevant education. The campus is in Oslo which is an international city, nestled between the mountains and the sea, with excellent public transport options.'
'All international students are guaranteed housing which takes away the stress of having to find a place to live when moving to a new country. The housing areas are located near campus and in the city centre. If students apply before the housing deadline of 1 May, they will have a place to live. These can cost between 350 – 600 euros per month depending on the style of accommodation.'
'Finally, class sizes are small, so students will have more opportunity to interact with their professors and build professional and personal networks with other students.'
