Alfaskolen advices all students requiring any form of Visa to check their Visa possibilities and their recommended application timeline, with the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) BEFORE applying to Alfaskolens courses. It is the student's own responsibility to apply for, track, and follow through with their own visa process. Students should allow themselves several months to apply for and receive an answer regarding their visa.
Once you have checked your possibilities with the UDI, you are ready to begin the application process, please click on the green sign-up button on top of this page. Please fill out the form and send it back to us after you have read the school regulations. The regulations have important information about course registration and cancellation policies. You can find the regulations here.
The period taken to process a visa application is calculated individually and can depend on the country the participant is applying from. Please be informed that in some cases the visa processing might take longer time than expected.
Alfaskolen is familiar with some cases where students from countries like Nepal, India, Philippines and Pakistan have experienced a very long visa processing time, sometimes up to 1 year.
BEFORE applying for the One Year Program, please contact your local Norwegian embassy/consulate or UDI in order to check the visa processing time for your country.
Alfaskolen is not helping with nor giving information about topics as visa to Norway, accommodation in Oslo or working in Norway.
OBS! It is the student's own responsibility to apply for, track, and follow through with their own visa process. Students should allow themselves several months to apply for and receive an answer regarding their visa. Please check with UDI regarding their recommended application timeline.
Many applicants ask us if they can bring their spouses with them to Norway. To read more about family immigration for students, please go to UDIs website.
If the participant's visa application is rejected/denied, Alfaskolen will refund the course fee, after having deducted a 10 % cancellation fee.
If the participant’s visa is denied during the course, we will refund the course fee minus the 10% application fee and the cost of any sessions attended by the student.
You can find detailed information on how the visa process applies to our students in Alfaskolens school regulations.
