11 Best Art & Design schools in Norway

Below is the list of best universities in Norway ranked based on their research performance in Art & Design. A graph of 70K citations received by 5.37K academic papers made by 11 universities in Norway was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and therefore prefers institutions researching arts through computer science.
