BI Norwegian Business School

Age: 68

History: BI Norwegian Business School is an internationally recognized and accredited institution located in Oslo, the capital of Norway. It is a school for students who want a wide scope, accessibility and flexibility, as well as depth, specialisation and international perspective. It received EQUIS accreditation from the European Foundation for Management Development in 1999 and was reaccredited in 2005.

Address: Nydalsveien 37 0484, Oslo

Ambience: Friendly, down-to-earth people, unique scenery, summer nights bright as day and delightful snowy winters make Norway a special country. Its crime rate is amongst the lowest in the world and its environment and air are amongst the cleanest. Norway’s nature and countryside invite you to exciting outdoor activities all year around: mountain hiking, climbing, hunting, cycling, rafting, swimming, golf, sailing, skiing and more. Alternatively you can relax and enjoy the view of breathtaking fjords and landscapes. Each season has its own special features and charm.

Vital statistics: The university hosts approximately 19,000 students.

Added value: BI is a future-oriented business school and is continually updating and improving its teaching facilities. The purpose-built BI offers guaranteed housing to international students, on-campus health and welfare services, library and access to a fitness centre.

Nightlife: Few other capitals can offer such a variety of activities and scenery as Oslo. You may have breakfast at the beach watching the seagulls following a fishing boat. Lunch you may choose to have at a downtown café listening to the sounds of the metropolis. And at night you may choose to throw yourself into a throbbing nightlife or sit around a bonfire with your friends in the woods overlooking the city. Oslo is big enough for all this to happen, but still small enough for you to do it all in a day!

Any accommodation? BI guarantees housing for international students. There are several dormitories for BI students. This is usually the cheapest way to live in Oslo and a good way to meet other students. They offer a number of different rooms and facilities like squash court, laundry room, roof terrace, broadband Internet and cable TV. You will have the chance to select either a single or shared room option. It is also possible to find private accommodation, but rental prices would be comparatively higher.

Cheap to live there? Per year, approximately: housing €5,500 - €6,500 (around £4,800 - £5,700), food/personal expenses €4,000 (around £3,500), books and supplies €1,500 (around £1,300) and transportation €500 (around £440).

Fees: 1st year €8,000 (around £7,000), 2nd year €8,400 (around £7,300), 3rd year €8,400 (around £7,300).
