70% of the visitors at the Student fairs are interested in information about studying abroad.
Between 6000 and 9000 visitors take part in the survey which is conducted at the fairs every year. The interest for studying abroad is continously high among the audience.
Studying abroad is very popular among Norwegian students and they are encouraged by the Ministry of Education to obtain international experience and language skills during their studies.
The interest and willingness to study abroad is now increasing after the past year with the pandemic situation. Many students are now eager to travel abroad to experience a new country and culture while obtaining an international education.
For the semester starting autumn 2021, students can also obtain funding from Lånekassen even if they cannot start their studies physically at the university abroad. This means that they can start studying online from home until it is safe to travel abroad.
