  2. Hi. Please is there any free tuition university in Norway that accepts transfer students or any cheap university in Norway that accepts transfer medical students (bachelor degree) . Please I need help urgently.

    1. Hello Jannie. I hope you are doing great. Unfortunately, you can’t apply as a transfer student to any Norwegian medical University. Infact from my research of universities in Norway,there are no Norwegian universities that accept transfer students. Let me know if you need additional information.

      Thanks
