Information about teaching activities at NHH during the corona pandemic.

The spring semester 2021

Published 11 November 2020, 8.53 AM. Updated 18 December 10.40 AM (Time Zone info under Course Activities).

The basic principle governing the planning for the upcoming spring is that everything should be pre-emptive.

With respect to courses and learning activities, NHH is planning for a flexible solution that can be carried out under most circumstances ranging from a relatively normal situation to the extreme case of a larger Covid-19 outbreak which may force us to close the campus.

Main guidelines for avoiding infection:

  • The most important measures are the 1-metre rule, hand washing and cleaning of work surfaces.
  • Please respect that every other seat in study halls, canteens and auditoriums should not be used.
  • Please also act in accordance with the one-way traffic in the corridors.

Course activities

For all course activities at NHH there will be a digital alternative this spring. This will be the case both at the bachelor and master levels. In some courses the main activities will be planned as physical activities, in others they will be digital, and some courses may even be carried out fully digitally. However, physical meeting places are important and the school hopes to see as many students as possible on campus in the spring. Notice that sometimes the digital alternative might be “live” in our time zone (CET). You should take this into account if deciding to follow courses digitally from outside Europe.

The school considers physical activities to be of particular importance for new students. This implies that, except in the case of a complete shutdown due to Covid-19, for bachelor students the need for physical meeting places will be met at the programme level.

The Autumn semester 2020

Published 5 May 2020, 9.09 AM. Updated 16 November 2.32 PM

NHH does its utmost to ensure that all students get high quality teaching and studies in the autumn semester of 2020, regardless of how the Covid-19 situation develops. NHH follows current rules and advice on infection control.

Due to an increase in infections in Bergen and the restrictions from Bergen municipality, students are strongly encouraged to study from home if possible. All teaching activitites are currently online.

Post-programme course registration scheme

NHH opens a post-programme course registration scheme (“poststudierett”) for students who finish their master's studies in the spring or autumn of 2020.

The corona pandemic has led to a sudden change in the labour market for recent graduates, and many companies have postponed recruitment and start-up for new employees. Although NHH graduates normally are highly sought after in the labour market, the situation is also challenging for them.

As part of NHH's contribution to improve the situation, we will offer students who complete the Master’s programmes in Economics and Business Administration and in Accounting this spring or autumn, a post-programme course registration scheme that can be used to take individual master’s courses at NHH. The scheme will be open for one semester at a time for up to one year, and is only available for the mentioned group.

This will, for instance, give students who have completed the Master’s programme in economics and business administration (MØA/MSc) the opportunity to take a one-year Master’s degree in accounting (MRR), or enable students to explore further subject areas to increase their competence.

However, note that it will not be possible to take courses with restricted access, nor will it be possible to retake a course the student already has passed.

Apply for Post-programme course registration scheme in the application web/søknadsweb

Application web opens 20 December. Case processing takes approximately one week. Teaching starts in mid-January. we therefore recommend that you apply as soon as possible after 20 December, but the final deadline is 1 February 2021.

The post-programme course registration scheme requires applicants to complete the MØA or MRR at NHH in the spring or autumn of 2020. If you are still waiting for censorship, we encourage you to wait until you have received this before applying.
