5 Top-Ranked Universities in Norway

Norway is a great place to get your education. Although it's cold - and they did go through a "butter crisis" in 2011 - Norway has some of the highest-ranked universities, the best student accommodations, and the most boring TV shows (train rides, knitting, and log fires, oh my).

But, going back to the highest-ranked and the best universities, you should know that Norwegian organisations, like the University of Bergen, can be great magnets for international students from all over the world.

World university rankings take into consideration the teachers' competencies, the quality of education, and student satisfaction, as well as the international student ratio, and the number of citations their research gets. So, there's a lot of work that goes into making this university rankings list and selecting the best academic institutions Norway has to offer. Using the highest ranked universities below as a starting point, you can bet you'll stand out from other students and you'll join a fine and amazing elite who attended some of the top Norwegian universities.
