At University of the Arts London, we currently have over 60 students from Norway studying with us as part of our internationally diverse student community. Watch Henrik’s video above to hear about his experience of being a Norwegian student at UAL.

You can choose from a wide range of art, design, fashion, media, communication and performing arts courses at foundation, undergraduate, and postgraduate levels.

If you're currently studying for a bachelor's degree, you may wish to consider participating in one of our three Study Abroad programmes. Study Abroad is an excellent opportunity for Norwegian students to experience University level education in art and design-related subjects in the UK as well as potentially earning transfer credits back in their home institutions.
