Norway Scraps Plans to Charge Non-EU Students Tuition

November 24, 2014

Students from countries outside the European Economic Community won't have to pay tuition at universities in Norway after all, according to a final budget proposal presented on Friday. Norway's center-right government had proposed the idea -- which many university leaders criticized -- but scrapped the idea as part of a set of compromises with parliament to ensure the budget would pass. Tuition will therefore continue to be free for Norwegian nationals and international students at Norway's public institutions, Universitas reported (link is in Norwegian).
