There are three categories of institutional accreditation in Norway:
Universities have the right to establish programmes at all levels.
Specialised University Colleges have the right to establish study programmes at all levels within their majors.
University Colleges have the right to establish study programmes at bachelor's level.
All institutions with accredited study programmes may call themselves University College.
University Colleges that are not accredited institutions must apply to NOKUT for accreditation of study programmes at all levels.
Note: Some of these University Colleges only have Norwegian names and websites.
