Oslo Metropolitan University (Oslomet; Norwegian: Oslomet – storbyuniversitetet) is a state university in Oslo and Akershus in Norway. It is the result of the merger of many former vocational colleges in the Greater Oslo Region. It has around 1,400 academic employees (of which over 150 are professors/research professors, the top rank in Norway), around 20,000 students and around 800 administrative support staff.
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.
