IMDi Scholarship - The Norwegian Education Scheme

Lingu manages scholarships from the IMDi through the Norwegian Education Scheme. Students who qualify for a course can apply here.

About the Norwegian Education Scheme

The purpose of the scholarship scheme is to provide targeted and flexible support to immigrants who need to strengthen their Norwegian language skills by offering them a limited number of teacher-led hours in Norwegian training. The long-term goal is to get participants up to B1 level or higher in spoken and/or written Norwegian.

Read more about the scheme on the IMDi webpage.


How does it work?

Lingu has received a grant from IMDi, meaning we can accept a limited number of participants on selected courses. Those who wish to apply for a scholarship can fill out the relevant application form. Our Customer Service centre will evaluate the applications and award free places on available courses worth NOK 10,000 to those who meet the conditions.
