Immigrate to Norway?

I'd like to know how difficult it is to permanently immigrate to Norway. Here are some personal details. I'm a white male of English ethnicity, 6'2", auburn hair, blue eyes. No known hereditary mental or physical illnesses in the family. I'm 22 years old. I have a BA 1st class joint honours (language and history) in Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse, an MA Distinction in Old Norse, both from excellent Universities. I have just been accepted for a PhD place at a Norwegian University. I speak semi-fluent Norwegian, and fluent Icelandic. It is my understanding that a PhD takes at least three years to complete, after this I would like to apply for permanent residence/citizenship. Any advise, anecdotes, opinions, et cetera would be appreciated. Thank you.

If you've already been accepted to study at a Norwegian University, then you shouldn't have a problem getting a residence permit for the duration of your studies. (http://udi.no/templates/Tema.aspx?id=7416) After your three years of study, you would be able to stay in Norway as a resident providing you found a) a job in Norway or b) a spouse in Norway. Both are made more possible by the fact that you speak semi-fluent Norwegian, though I suggest that while you're working on your PhD, you also work on your Norwegian and push it up to fluent. If you are a citizen of an EU country (Does your "English" ethnicity imply British citizenship?), you can stay in Norway for 6 months without a residence permit while you look for a job. Outside of technical fields or skilled labor, it can be difficult to find a job in Norway if you do not speak fluent Norwegian (hence the suggestion to hone your language skills while you study). If you choose to marry a Norwegian, you can stay and live in Norway under the family immigration laws, which will also give you permission to work. You can apply for a settlement permit, which allows you to stay in Norway indefinitely if you have married a Norwegian or if you've been working in Norway for three years. http://www.udi.no/templates/Tema.aspx?id=7429 Generally, you can pursue Norwegian citizenship once you've lived in Norway for 7 years. There are exemptions to this 7-year period if you are a citizen of another Scandinavian or Nordic country, but in almost all cases, you will be required to renounce your original citizenship in order to obtain Norwegian citizenship. http://www.udi.no/templates/Tema.aspx?id=4480 Regarding finding a job as a non-Norwegian, assuming you have sufficient language skills, the problem I've heard most often among foreigners is that they have difficulty interviewing for positions due to Janteloven. They find it difficult to demonstrate their qualifications without appearing self-important.

I think you cannot immigrate to another country. You can only emigrate to another country.
