Bergenstesten (english)

Norwegian Language Test – Advanced Level


The test is designed for people who intend to work or study in Norway and who need a certificate of proficiency in Norwegian. It applies primarily to people who do not have Norwegian as their mother tongue, but may also be of interest to native speakers who lack documentation of their competence in Norwegian.

Norwegian citizens who do not meet the official requirements for higher education in the Norwegian language (i.e. studiekompetanse), must pass the advanced level test to be admitted to Norwegian universities and colleges. This also concerns those who intend to apply for financial support from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund (Lånekassen).
The  next test will take place in September 2022. ( ) for further information
