Thanks to a colleague at the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills, I learned more about how many Vietnamese students are pursuing higher education in Norway and in which fields. While the numbers are modest compared to the top 15 overseas destinations, you can see gradual increases from 2011 to 2021. Norway has a solid foundation upon which to build. Given the number of young Vietnamese studying in Finland and Sweden, there’s considerable untapped potential. Here’s the Study in Norway website.
