Education from abroad

If you have foreign educational credentials, you are welcome to submit a standard membership application. When processing these applications, we base our evaluations on the guidelines provided by the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT). We’ll contact you if we need any documentation. If you have a NOKUT statement confirming that your educational credentials correspond with a Norwegian Master's degree, you can attach this statement to your application form.

Special admission

If you have an undergraduate degree (for example, a Bachelor's degree) but believe that you’ve acquired competence at the Master's degree level through continuing education and/or work experience, you can apply for special admission. The Tekna Admissions Council will process your application.
