Visiting Scholar Programme

The Visiting Scholar Programme at the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights (NCHR) offers 4 researchers from Mainland China, Indonesia and Vietnam the unique opportunity of becoming a guest researcher at the NCHR for a period of two months every year. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a PhD programme, or have obtained a PhD degree already.


The objective is to support emerging high quality research within the field of international human rights, to build human rights research capacity in the target countries and provide international networking and exchange opportunities between individuals and institutions in the human rights Field.

Internship with the China Programme

Students from the NCHR Master degree in human rights have the opportunity to apply for an internship at the China Programme to learn about practical human rights work for their human rights in practice course. Information about the internships, nature of tasks and application procedures will be announced through the human rights master programme

Study opportunities at the University of Oslo

The China programme is regularly contacted by scholars and students from China who wish to study at the University of Oslo.

While the China programme itself does not arrange courses in Norway, our Centre offers a two-year Master’s degree in the Theory and Practice of Human Rights. The University at large also offers many Master degrees and PhD opportunities to foreign students.

There are some scholarships available for foreign students wishing to pursue a degree in Norway. For easy reference we have gathered information about some opportunities in a separate study page.

Applications should be made directly to the university, the China programme cannot process applications and is not able to influence the application process in any way.
