Norwegian School of Economics - Haskayne Only

Attend one of Norway's Top 2 business institutions in Bergen: a coastal city along the fjords with its own unique food culture. This is the only place in Norway you can get the famous Bergen cinnamon bun, the "skillingsboller"! (Not into pastries? Try the local reindeer hot dog!)

Located in picturesque Bergen on Norway's southwestern coast, the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) is one of Norway's top two institutions for business, management and economics. It is regarded as one of the top business schools in Europe (QS 2019), and is in one of the most scenic fjordland locations in Scandinavia, making it the perfect place to get that instagram-worthy photo.

Variety of courses offered in English. Courses available for incoming Bachelor-level students:

Haskayne BComm students must take their common core courses at the University of Calgary. On exchange students can take two senior commerce and/or non-commerce options, and/or a maximum of 2 concentration courses (not ACCT/PLMA). They are required to maintain full time status while on exchange, so they must take the equivalent of at least 3 half courses (18 ECTS) and up to 5 half courses (30 ECTS).

Ensure you review your course selection with a Haskayne exchange advisor at least 2 months before leaving for your exchange to confirm transfer credit.

Please consult the host university's website to create a tentative list of 60 ECTS credits per semester that you are interested in taking. This list may be based on the current or previous year's courses.

Course conversion: 6 ECTS = 3 units at the UofC (IE one half-course equivalent course).

  • Fall Semester: August – December 
  • Spring Semester: January – June 

Please see the academic calendar for details:

  1. Costs

    Students accepted on an exchange program through the Haskayne School of Business will pay tuition to the University of Calgary for a full course load. Students will also pay most of the general fees to the University of Calgary for their exchange term. Tuition and fees are due by the regular tuition and fee deadline at the University of Calgary, regardless of when the exchange term begins.

    Students are sometimes also expected to pay fees to their host institution. This information is given to exchange students by the host institution, after they have applied and been accepted for an exchange.

  2. Funding

    Did you know that you can take your UCalgary funding with you on exchange? 
    Since you remain a degree seeking student at UCalgary while on exchange you remain eligible for any awards and scholarships you are eligible to receive from the university as well as student loans.

    Our office administers the International Study Travel Grant for students travelling on approved UCalgary study programs that are credit bearing. The amount changes year to year as the money is split evenly between qualified applicants. Students may only receive the study travel grant once. Please see the exchange funding page for more information.

    Please see our website for more information about funding for Haskayne students on Haskayne exchanges.

International travel presents challenges that may not be found when attending classes on campus. There may be a lack of resources, emergency services, hospitals, accessibility issues and/or demands on the physical and the mental self, all of which can challenge individuals when away from their usual support systems and structures. Adequate preparation is essential.

For this reason, it is imperative that you evaluate all aspects of your own physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual condition against the rigors of the particular study abroad program you are selecting. If you are unsure of whether or not this program is a good fit for you and/or if you have any circumstances that could impede your enjoyment of the program, please contact us. Our Study Abroad Team will be happy to assist in finding the best options for you and arrange any supports or accommodations necessary to ensure your success.

Please note if you have or are seeking a certificate from Student Accessibility Services, you should provide this early to your Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that the option that you are seeking can support your needs.
