How to choose the right master´s program

Today it´s one week until application deadline! Did you know that there is currently about 710 different Master programs to choose from in Norway? It can be quite difficult deciding what is most important to you when considering which master´s program you want to apply for. It´s a jungle out there, so here´s a few tips that may help you make the right choice.

  1. Do your research

Good research is important, and the first thing to do is to narrow down your options to which programs you qualify for and which you are really interested in. Then you should take a look at your job opportunities after finishing the program. You should also check out the location, facility and student life of the university, and what kind of connection the university and particular program have to the industry.

  1. Stay updated

Normally we would recommend attending education fairs, but obviously that´s out of the question these days, due to Covid-19. Most universities have stepped up their social media game by now, so make sure to stay updated by following their Facebook and Instagram accounts. Some master´s programs even have their own accounts on social media.

  1. Ask questions

We´re sure you have a lot of questions. The threshold for contacting the universities, and team working on the relevant master´s program, is very low. Write yourself a list of questions and give us a call, write us an e-mail, or invite us to a video meeting to get your questions regarding the master answered.

  1. Follow your interests

This is our most important tip, so do some good thinking on this one. Which master´s program gives you the opportunity to work with what YOU are passionate about? What motivates you? Remember – what you like to do, you will do best.
