You yourself are responsible for having proper travel and health insurance when studying abroad. As a legally valid resident of Norway for more than 12 months, you are usually automatically a part of the Norwegian National Health Insurance scheme. If you are here for a shorter stay, you will have to ensure that you have sufficient health and travel insurance.
