Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Norway

Studying Master of Science (M.Sc.)

The Master of Science (M.Sc. or M.S. degree) is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by most universities, colleges and graduate schools worldwide. Classes are usually technically oriented and focus on developing analytical and problem-solving skills through lab work and scientific research. You don’t need a Bachelor of Science in order to apply to a Master of Science, but you must already have an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject.

The general study duration of an M.Sc. degree is between 1-2 years long. Still, some Master’s programmes in Computer Science and Engineering take 3-5 years to complete, and Medicine Masters can take as much as 6 years to finish, depending on your specialisation.

In order to receive a Master of Science degree from an international tech school, you usually have to write a scientific thesis at the end of your academic studies. Generally, universities and graduate schools award a Master of Science (M.Sc. degree) for finishing studies in Natural Sciences, Social Sciences (e.g. Finance, Psychology), Business, Engineering & Technology, Medicine & Health, Mathematics, Informatics, etc.

Study in Norway

Norway is a paradise for anyone who wants to study abroad for free. Public universities don’t charge any tuition fees. This policy applies to all international students, regardless of their nationality. The academic standard is very high, and professors are easy to approach, always willing to go the extra mile for their students. Additionally, classes are organised in small groups, which further improves learning and cooperation. You can choose from a wide range of English-taught programmes, and you don’t need to worry about language barriers outside of classes either, because most Norwegians speak English as a second language. Internationals should find it easy to adapt to Norway’s society, which is based on equality and fair opportunities — reflected both in the legal system and in people’s behaviour.
