All you need to know
THE SCHOOL YEAR
The school year begins in August and follows the regular holidays for the schools in Oslo. The year in Jesus Revolution and Day& Night is longer, and does not include autumn and winter holidays.
The school day lasts from 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM Monday – Friday.
In addition the 1st year students have 8 hours of ministry every week, and the 2nd year students have 10 hours. The schedule is made in order to make it possible to combine school with a part-time job. Jesus Revolution and Day&Night have a different schedule that does not allow for a part-time job.
During the year every student will join school trips and church events. Please read below for more information.
The teaching languages at TBBMI are Norwegian and English. 50% of the teaching is only in English, the rest is interpreted between Norwegian and English.
The school accepts applicants from all countries except nationals in need of student visa from countries listed in the orange or red group in the UDI’s guidelines for Visa practice (see the following links: orange group, red group). Maximum 10 percent of the school’s accepted number, which means 11 people, can be citizens from countries outside EEA. This limit is only for citizens that have a residence permit for studies. Please see the intake regulations here (link) in order to read more about this. In order to apply for a study visa, you will first need a confirmation letter from TBBMI, but it is important that you first read through UDI’s application requirements before you send in your application to TBBMI.

Students from countries within the EU/EEA just need to register electronically here
EVENTS IN JESUS CHURCH
Throughout the school year every student in TBBMI will partake actively in the events arranged by TBBMI’s host church Jesus Church, such as Guds Mann (Men of God), Kingdom Come, JK (Jesus Women), 100 hours – Prayer for Norway.
A more detailed program will be given at the start of the school year.
In these events the TBBMI students will be involved with practical tasks that will help you learn how to arrange and plan an event.
In order to cover administration expenses, every student is required to pay a school fee.
The school fee at TBBMI is:
- 17 500 NOK for the 1st year – Bible and Missions line
- 17 500 NOK for the 2nd year – Preacher and Missions line
- 8 750 NOK for the 3rd year – Extended ministry
The school fee is divided in two payments, invoiced at the beginning of each semester (fall/spring).
The Admission fee of 2 000 NOK (1000 for the 3rd year) will be subtracted from the first semester fee.
In addition, each student needs to cover the maximum cost of 12 500 NOK for the yearly mission trip. This is a mandatory trip and part of the school curriculum.
Altogether the school costs will be a maximum of 30 000 NOK (1st and 2nd year) and 21 250 (3rd year).
Jesus Revolution interns will not be required to pay for the mission trip, having through this program their own missions expenses.
The Israel trip is voluntary and the cost is in addition to the school fee.
TBBMI is a publicly accredited Bible school and Nordic students are eligible for loans and scholarships. If you are a Nordic student and you have received an acceptance letter from us, you may apply for loan and scholarship at www.lanekassen.no.
Students from other countries in Scandinavia may also apply for loans and scholarships in their home countries. We recommend you to do this as early as possible after being accepted as a student at TBBMI.
HOW TO GET TO NORWAY/OSLO
Several airlines have daily flights to Oslo. On momondo.com you can search for cheap tickets from an airport close to you. There are two airports serving the city of Oslo: Oslo Airport Gardermoen (The main airport) and Oslo Airport Torp.
All airports have bus and train connections to Oslo.
TBBMI wants to give the students an exciting year, and every year we arrange different trips. Some are mandatory, some voluntary.
Missions trip (mandatory)
TBBMI is the bible school which focuses on missions. This is our heart beat. At TBBMI you will learn a lot by studying the Bible and involving yourself in local ministry, but also by going out into missions. Every year we have arranged missions trips to European countries and the Balkans. On the missions trip you will get the opportunity to experience God’s power in practice, other cultures and language and spread God’s love and message. This travel is mandatory and it is important that you save up money for this, in the same way as you need money for school fees.
Every year we have a school trip at the beginning of the semester. We have experienced that the trip means a lot for the understanding of the vision and background of the school, in addition to strengthening the social environment. Here there will be teaching, social activities and nice fellowship.
The trip is mandatory and TBBMI will cover the expenses of the trip. More detailed information will be given at the beginning of the school year.
