Can I apply for membership?

Professionals holding a Master’s degree (or the equivalent thereof) in which science or technology disciplines comprise a main component are eligible for membership in Tekna.

If you have a master’s degree (or the equivalent to a Norwegian master’s degree) that includes at least 120 ECTS in technology, natural sciences or mathematics you are welcome to apply for membership in Tekna. The relevant credits can be at either a master’s degree, or bachelor’s degree level. Eligibility is based solely on your education, we do not take your professional experience in to consideration.

To evaluate applications with education from other countries that Norway we use guidelines set by NOKUT (Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education). You can attach your diploma(s) and grade transcript(s) or mark sheet(s) to your application if you have them available. This normally reduces the processing time of your application considerably.

If you don’t have a master’s degree that is recognised at equal to a Norwegian master’s degree by NOKUT, don’t’ have a master’s degree at all or are educated within other disciplines than those we require you can apply for special consideration.

Your application is then processed by the Qualifications Evaluation Committee, and you can find more about the process for this here.
