Bergen University College (Norwegian: Høgskolen i Bergen or HiB) is a Norwegian public institution of higher education, established in August 1994 by the merging of six former independent colleges in Bergen, Norway. The total number of students is about 6700, and there are 660 academic and administrative staff.[1]

It provides professional education within health and social sciences, engineering, economic and administrative science, music and teaching. It offers education on bachelor and master level, continuing education, and is working to expand its doctoral program.[2]
