The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and most famous college. The university is very prestigious known for its beautiful architecture and is currently the 58th best college in the world and 135th according to the official rankings according to The Academic Ranking of World Universities organization and the 142nd best university worldwide done by the Top Universities research group. The university currently has 27,700 students enrolled and 6.000 members of staff employed and teaches theology, law, medicine, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, dentistry and Education. The University of Oslo was founded in 1811 and was originally named as Royal Frederic University in honor of King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway until the year 1939. The University represents the heart of Norway’s culture and today it is internationally recognized as the first university to have ever hosted a Nobel peace prize ceremony and is even known to have 5 of its scientist affiliates that have also been awarded with Nobel prizes. This demonstrates how effective the university actually is in developing brilliant minds and to this day, many students that have graduated from the University of Oslo have been shown to very smart and intelligent people such as Harrison Smith the former American astronaut, Baldwin Spencer the prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda and Thor Heyerdahl, Norway’s brave adventurer and ethnographer.
This is one of the only institutions that do not require tuition fees, but because of the university’s very competitive nature it is a highly selective college who will only take students who are ambitious and whose shoulders are straight. This is why a student who gets into the University of Oslo must be very energetic and be able to fully input all of their effort in courses to be able to remain up to date with the institution’s fast paced and state of the art education. But given the fact that the student was able to get in, it is without a doubt that he/she will remain up to date with all classes anyway as all ambitious students almost never fail to graduate from this university.
