Documentation for language courses
Documentation requirements when applying
When applying for grants or loans for language courses, you need to submit documentation in support of the application.
Confirmation of admission
The confirmation must be issued by the school at which you will be attending the language course. The confirmation must show the start and end date of the course, as well as the number of hours of teaching per week.
If you will be attending a longer language course for which tuition fees are payable, you will need to submit confirmation from the school showing how much you have to pay. You need to let us know if you receive support from others to cover tuition fees.
General study competence
You must document that you have general study competence in Norway. Such documentation could, for example, be an upper secondary education diploma.
If you will be attending a longer language course at a language school, you will need to submit documentation showing which examination you will sitting at the end of the course. If you will be attending a short language course or a longer language course at a university, you do not need to document which examination or final test you will be sitting.
You need to submit confirmation showing that the teaching language of the course you will study later is a language other than English, Danish or Swedish. This is applicable only if you will be attending a short language course
Documentation requirements upon completion of the course
If you have been awarded support for a longer language course, you will need to submit documentation afterwards in order for the loan to be converted to a grant. You do not need to submit documentation when the course ends if you have completed a short language course.
Copy of course certificate or passed examination
The course certificate must show that you have passed the course. If you have completed the course at a language school, you will need to submit documentation showing that you have passed an official language examination that forms the basis for admission to university and university college education in the country in question. This is not necessary if you have completed a language course at a university.
If you have received support for tuition fees, you will need to submit confirmation from the school showing what you have paid in tuition fees or course fees
