Student campaign stops introduction of fees


The government has backed down from plans to introduce tuition fees after a well-fought campaign by the National Union of Students in Norway. The Norwegian student union NSO celebrates victory after a strong campaign.

The Norwegian government had proposed that students from outside the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA) pay fees to study at Norwegian universities and colleges. But after a well-fought campaign by the National Union of Students in Norway, the measure has been scrapped.

In an agreement on the national budget for 2015, the two centrist supporting parties (Christian Democrats and Liberals) have pushed the government (the Conservatives and the Progress Party) to remove the measure from the budget. NSO president Anders Kvernmo Langset is pleased that the national and the local student unions in the country have been heard. But he warns the government that it should not push its luck again.

“A bad proposal does not get better just because it is repeated year after year. This time we expect the government to put the proposal in the paper shredder, and that it stops recycling bad ideas that have previously been rejected by the Parliament,” Langset said.

ESU has supported NSO in their fight against the proposal, and congratulates NSO in their success. “Norway has been one of the few countries that has upheld the commitment countries have made within the Bologna Process, that higher education is a public good and a public responsibility. NSO has done great work in reversing a proposal that would break this commitment and damage access and quality of higher education in Norway,” says Erin Nordal, ESU vice-chairperson.

On international students’ day on November 17, Norwegian student unions across the country organised actions against the proposed fees. In one of the more daring actions, students at Sogn og Fjordane University College decided to undress to protest.

"We´ll feel naked if international students no longer apply to study in Norway because of fees,” said Ingrid Moe Albrigtsen from the Student Parliament at the college.

"Fewer international students will influence diversity and quality of education in Norway," said Tollak Mikal Kaldheim, the president of the Student Parliament.
