QS Best Student Cities ranking: 65th\r\nNorway’s capital offers two prestigious institutions – the\u0026nbsp;University of Oslo, the largest and oldest in the country, which is ranked among the world’s top 150, and\u0026nbsp;BI Norwegian Business School, highly esteemed in its field worldwide.\r\nThe city gets its strongest score in the desirability\u0026nbsp;indicator\u0026nbsp;of the ranking, and is a regular feature in lists of the world’s “most livable” cities. It’s also often ranked among the world’s most expensive places to live. However, for students, high livings costs are to some extent counterbalanced by the fact that public universities in Norway do not charge tuition fees, for either domestic and international students. Fees are charged at private institutions.\r\nIn terms of things to do, Oslo has everything you’d expect from a European capital: historic architecture, galleries, museums, parks, and cafés. More unique attractions include the chance to go skiing just outside the city, boat trips on the Oslo fjord, open air public swimming pools, and the city center’s large free ice-skating rink.\r\nWhen asked to name the best things about Oslo, one student survey respondent said:\u0026nbsp;“Great standard of living, very good public spaces, and great atmosphere in the university area.”\u0026nbsp;Another praised\u0026nbsp;“The people, the socially liberal attitude of the city and the public transport system.”\u0026nbsp;\r\nAre you studying in Oslo?\u0026nbsp;Share your experience.\r\nInternationally ranked universities in Oslo\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nUniversity of Oslo;\u0026nbsp;BI Norwegian Business School\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMore about Oslo\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNumber of universities ranked by QS\r\n\r\n\r\n2\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHighest-ranked institution\r\n\r\n\r\nUniversity of Oslo\u0026nbsp;(joint 142nd)\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nPopulation\r\n\r\n\r\n1,718,000\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAverage international fees (at ranked unis)\r\n\r\n\r\nUS$5,100\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDesirability rank\r\n\r\n\r\n26th\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEmployer Activity rank\r\n\r\n\r\n70th\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAffordability rank\r\n\r\n\r\n120th\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nStudent View rank\r\n\r\n\r\n68th\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo find out how each of the above categories is calculated,\u0026nbsp;view the methodology.
