Note 7: In certain cases, it is possible to obtain a degree without enrolment in and successful completion of the course. There are two ways in which this can be done:
1. A qualification from abroad can be recognised as satisfying the criteria for a Norwegian degree, meaning that the person in question is entitled to use the Norwegian degree as well as the one from abroad.
2. In programmes in which assessment is or can be done solely on the basis of examinations, external candidates can be allowed to sit for regular or especially designed examinations and thus obtain the
If examinations have to be made especially, the higher education institution can request a fee to cover costs. This possibility is not open to programmes with compulsory work or work practice or the like.

Note 8: Decisions relating to content, compulsory courses, work practice and other requirements, as well as to the assessment of students, are all delegated to the higher education institutions.
However, the Ministry has laid down frameworks for certain vocationally oriented programmes of 3 to 4 years' duration, eg in nursing, teacher education, engineering, and the like.
The Ministry has also made a national regulation on certain requirements for the Master's degree: Regulation (forskrift) no. 1574 of 16 December 2005.
The tertiary education institutions are under legal obligation to have the independent work for the higher (master's) degree assessed by minimum two examiners, of whom at least one must be external.
In addition, it should be noted that at the tertiary level, work load for students is generally described in terms of credits - 60 per year, as in the ECTS system.

Note 9: Programmes at ISCED level 4 ("fagskoleutdanning") are accredited individually by NOKUT, the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education.
As courses are very varied, the organisation of examinations and course hours, etc vary from one course to another, and so do particular specific requirements.

Note 10: In a number of programmes, the independent work (i.e. thesis, artistic development work, or the like) comes at the very end.
