Great to see her going back to school again. She takes her duty with importance but I do wonder if she has a under-graduate degree and in what?

I am really pleased to see that she is continuing with her studies. Dani90, I don't believe that she has an undergraduate degree. I know that she has taken classes, but I haven't read anything about her having an actual degree at this time. It does sound like she might be working toward one.

I think it's great that she's going to school as well.
And taking this excerpt from the HELLO article above, this will no doubt help her in her role:
"Her three-year part-time degree follows a stint at the London University's School Of African and Oriental Studies in 2002/3 when she took classes in development, HIV/AIDS and refugees."

I wonder what her classmates at harvard thought when they found out that the crown princess of Norway was their classmate and how she was never spotted by the Cambridge press because I never heard she was at hArvard

She was only at Harvard for 2 weeks. Her classmates were the other members of her WEF Young Global Leaders class, so they already were familiar with her.

I think the "Hello" article went a little overboard with their praise. Gee, how does she do it, going to school with three children and royal duties? Well, nannies, cooks, and cleaning ladies sure help. Not to mention having someone who does the laundry, shopping and organizing for you. And to all of you out there who tried unsuccessfully to get into a Harvard program, well, just marry a prince and voila! no problem. I think supporting her efforts in getting an education is nobel, but let's not forget she is in a very priviledged position and therefore her feat in obtaining certificates and eventually a degree is really not that extrordinary.

I think that Mette-Marit does not study to complete any degree but rather to fulfill her personal interests or when she feels that some classes might be related to her job. Therefore I'm not surprised that she didn't finish the course of her study.

An other artical about her BI sudies... Google Fordító

I find it a little bit strange, that she couldn't finished her studies, because of her job as princess and of her familylife... Other women in the world make also studies and they have also job and family. Yes it is not easy, but I think many of them haven't got servants, and assistants and babysitters and and and... But it is also true, that she doesn't need any degree for her job as crownprincess... :)

Well, she doesn´t need to have a complete degree for her job. I think it is quite enough to be well educated.
I believe she rather picked her studies based on personal interest (for her social work), rather than finishing a degree because of pure ambition.

The final project is a logic finish of any studies, so every student shows the outcome of the whole work done.
She may be a princess and may not finish her studies, but it would be logical to be all done in the end (as for every student including me ).

I am glad that she found the courage to go back to school,attend university and enroll in courses that she found interesting or useful for her work.It would be great if she completed her studies with a degree,because after all a lot of people respect and appreciate you more if you have obtained a university title.(It shows that you are disciplined,goal-oriented and dedicated even when it requires hard work and sometimes isn´t that exciting...)
However,I am sure she will benefit from these courses no matter if she gets a degree or not:-)

A topic in Norwegian media this week after the documentary aired has actually been whether or not someone who doesn't finish what she starts in her studies is a good role-model for Norwegian girls. What is seen as the problem in Norway with this, is that the court portrayed her as going back to school - and now it is just one more educational prospect that Mette-Marit hasn't finished.

If, as you say, they had said that the Crown Princess would take some courses related to her job - instead of joining for the entire programme (and then not finish that as scheduled) - it would have given a much better impression PR-wise.

It was never implied by the court that she was indeed finishing a degree/starting a degree program, correct? It just said she was taking courses. If the court had said "Yes, Mette Marit is going back to finish her degree/attain a degree" then perhaps we could say she didn't finish anything.

I've taken several classes at my local university for personal enrichment and to understand social issues more deeply, isn't this what Mette Marit is doing as well? I cannot knock anyone for gaining more education. Whether it be by a few classes or getting a degree.
