Oslo Metropolitan University

Multiple locations
OsloMet is an urban university with a diverse academic profile and a clear international orientation. Through the research we conduct and the students we educate, OsloMet seeks to respond to the needs of society and the labour market. OsloMet is forward-thinking and committed to adopting new technologies and innovative solutions that improve the way the university is run. 

History

The OsloMet story dates back more than two centuries. Our programme in midwifery was established in 1818, and several of our other study programmes are the oldest of their kind in Norway. 

In 2018, after a succession of mergers, we gained university status—no small feat in Norway, where the criteria are quite strict. Since then, OsloMet has continued educating professionals who are sought-after.

Education

One of OsloMet’s greatest strengths is our educational portfolio. With our institution home to degree programmes in teacher education, nursing, engineering—to name just a few—we are uniquely positioned to develop cutting-edge solutions to the challenges facing the welfare state.We have five master programmes taught completely in English, and more than 160 courses in English available for exchange students.

Research

OsloMet’s research community conducts high-impact research on a variety of topics related to health, childhood and education, working and family life, and technology. We are home to one of the largest research communities in Northern Europe focusing on the Nordic welfare model and its impact on people across the life cycle. 

Our research activities have been strengthened significantly in recent years and OsloMet researchers are attracting an increasing percentage of external funding, both from international and Norwegian sources.  By participating in international projects on topics as diverse as artificial intelligence, immigration, our researchers contribute insights into complex issues of global concern.

Career

OsloMet is a large, urban university home to some of Norway's oldest and best-known programmes of professional study. Many of our alumni work on the front lines of the welfare state. Every year, OsloMet graduates begin working as teachers, social workers, nurses, engineers and other welfare state professionals striving to improve the lives of people across the life cycle. Our education has a practical approach, with most of our programmes have at least one period of placement in industry, or working with real life problem solving. Our careers team can give you individual guidance about your own career development and plans.
