About Noroff

The digital innovators of the future study at Noroff. You will be hands-on from your very first day. The business sector will be following your studies from your very first day. We have put ourselves in the shoes of your future employer and came up with a wish list. We then produced the study plan.


Noroff is a lifestyle. You will change jobs several times during your lifetime, but your education will remain part of your identity. This is why we believe in the formation of people, education through hands-on training and want to make you ready to take control.

We serve students in a technology-driven universe and prepare them for digital professional life. Our underlying philosophy is that you are ready on your first working day. Ready to work.

Noroff has been educating and training digital forensic researchers, film photographers and producers, 3D animators, graphic designers, digital marketers, games designers, system administrators, music producers, among others, for several decades.

Our vision is for Noroff graduates to be first movers. The first to develop new methods, the first on location, to be top-ranked in competence and the first to generate new job titles in new markets.

None of us knows what you will be working with after completing your basic training at Noroff. Job titles are being created on a daily basis by players in the digital arena. Today there is not one profession, hardly a single business that does not need digital specialist expertise. This is why one of our most important tasks is to ensure that our students continue to learn. That we follow them up. That the methods they have used to learn during their time at Noroff provide the skills to learn new things, quickly, accurately and at a high qualitative level.

Today, digital restructuring is a just as natural part of our working day as our lunch break. Therefore, we no longer educate for the professional title, but for the professional practice.

Our diverse study programmes are under continual development and are always closely scaled up to the labour market, and include bachelor’s programmes at Noroff University College and vocational specialisation at Noroff Vocational School.

Our campuses:

  • Oslo
  • Bergen
  • Stavanger
  • Kristiansand
  • Online Studies

All of the educational programmes at Noroff are accredited by the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) and have been approved for student loans and grants by the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Statens Lånekasse for Utdanning).

In addition to running its own university college, Noroff has collaborations with educational establishments abroad:

  • Teesside University in England
  • University of South Wales in Wales
  • AFDA Film School in South Africa
  • Deakin University in Australia

This collaboration enables Noroff students to build on their two-year vocational school education and receive a bachelor’s degree abroad over the course of a year.

Noroff Online Studies


By studying online, you can adapt your studies to your everyday life. You will be closely monitored by your tutor and will receive video lessons and customised expert guidance.

You might be working full time with a desire to enter into further education. You might be at home with children. You might be living abroad or too far away to attend the campus. Whatever the reason, we will provide you will all the tools you need. You will work together with teachers and other students during the course of your studies and supplement this with self-study. We have designed our studies to fit in with you and your life. This is guaranteed to change your future.

We want Noroff’s educational programs to provide support for new ideas and innovation within the digital industries.

We want our students to be highly-motivated and competent job seekers for positions where advanced and relevant digital competency is a requirement. Our studies are naturally also available digitally.

Many people do not have the opportunity to physically follow a series of lectures at a lecture hall. This is why we say at Noroff: Give everybody the same opportunity to succeed in their ambitions. You can, therefore, complete an entire bachelor’s degree online. Our portfolio contains both university college studies (bachelor’s studies) and vocational school studies, and these programmes are delivered in different ways. All of our university college lectures are streamed live and can be attended from a digital device anywhere in the world. You can also view the same lecture as many times as you like.

Full-time or part-time

You can take vocational studies on a full-time or part-time basis. The programmes start four times a year – in January, March, August and October. Our online studies have been arranged for those who need or desire flexibility in their studies, and the programmes correspond to the same education as the vocational education we provide our students on campus. Admission requirements are the same as for vocational education and university college education on campus.
