- Individual courses are courses included in the programme descriptions for the degrees and programmes of study available at the university college.
- Courses in master's programmes and programmes of professional study are only open to course students in exceptional cases.
- It is not normally possible for course students to take more than 50% of an ordinary programme. If you wish to take more than this, you must apply for ordinary admission as a student to the whole programme.
- Students who apply for admission to individual courses will be assessed for admission if there are any vacant places after the ordinary admission round has been completed.
- The rules for admission to individual courses are set out in the Regulations for Admission to Study Programmes at Østfold University College.
- Applicants must meet the ordinary admission requirements that apply to the programmes to which the course(s) belong.
- Course students are not offered individual solutions, but must follow the course in the same way as the full-time students. Most courses have coursework requirements that must be approved during the semester before the student can take the exam, see www.hiof.no/studieplaner for information about the coursework requirements for each course.
The applicable semester fee
Applications for admission to individual courses are considered from 1 June for the autumn semester and 1 October for the spring semester. Admission is granted as applications are received as long as there are vacant places on the course. Admission to first-year courses normally takes place after the main round of admissions via the Norwegian Universities and Colleges Admission Service, i.e. from around 20 July. Admission to individual courses concludes around one week before the semester begins. Exemptions from this can be made if there are vacant places and if it is academically justifiable, but not until after 15 September (autumn) / 15 January (spring).
The application must be submitted in writing and on a separate form. The form is available at the bottom of the university college's overview of application forms:
