Admission to a programme of study is contingent on payment of the semester fee. The semester fee is NOK 970 for students in Bergen and NOK 1010 for students in Oslo. For students in Stavanger the semester fee is NOK 855.
The semester fee to be paid to VID consists of two components, which are fees to:
- Student welfare organization
- Kopinor and student council
Student welfare organization
One part of the fee will go to the student welfare organization. The amount is set by the student welfare organizations and is as follows:
- Bergen Sammen: NOK 650
- Stavanger Studentsamskipnaden i Stavanger (SIS): NOK 535
- Oslo Studentsamskipnaden i Oslo (SiO): NOK 690
All students must join a student welfare organization. If you are a student at several institutions, you will only pay a semester fee at one institution. If you are not paying VID a semester fee, you must present a receipt from the other institution.
Kopinor and student council
The second part of the semester fee is NOK 320. All students at VID must pay this amount, regardless of whether they are full-time or part-time students, and whether they have paid a fee to a different student welfare organization. NOK 250 of this is a Kopinor reproduction fee and NOK 50 is the fee for the student council at the campus in question, and NOK 20 is volunteer fee to SAIH.
From 1 June 2022 will there be an administration fee of NOK 39,- on all outgoing invoices from VID.
Students at VID also pay a tuition fee that covers operation of VID's study programmes.
OBS! If you are an Erasmus+ student, you do not pay tuition fee to VID, but to your home institution.
Unlike state educational institutions, private ones may charge tuition fees as part of their revenues. Private educational institutions do not receive the same grants from the state as state institutions, but all revenues from students, state grants and other income are retained by the institution and are intended to promote development of the institution, its educational programmes and research, and the students.
The tuition fee may vary according to the educational programme. For more detailed information, see each programme.
Students who are delayed in their studies will pay tuition fee according to normal progress, and will pay a separate fee for postponed exams and clinical practice those semesters that they do not pay the tuition fee, in addition to the semester fee.
Examples of what the tuition fee promotes: Student democracy (including remuneration for student representatives, covering the costs of the Student Parliament), different welfare initiatives in the learning environment, study materials and learning resources.
The tuition fee may be adjusted once a year.
