The University of Oslo which was established on the 2nd day of September 1811 was popularly known as the Royal Frederick University. This was until the year 1939, when its name officially changed.
This University which is located in Oslo, Norway was the largest university by land area but however, it has been surpassed and is playing a secondary role to the Norwegian Institute of Science.

A brief history of the University incites us that one core reason for its creation was to encourage political separatist tendencies as Norway sought Independence from Sweden at that time.

The original reason for its creation was to train men and women who will go on to become government ministers and representatives of the parliament.

The University of Oslo as at 2018 is currently ranked at no 142. This is a great fall compared to its 2016 ranking where it ranked at 113.

University of Oslo Tuition fees
