Can I change my soggiorno permit for a Norwegian one ?

Hello everyone,
I won an Erasmus scholarship to study in Norway and for that, I need a study visa. My question is, I have a valid soggiorno permit, can I use it as some sort of visa? Or at least to use it in Norway until they will give me a Norwegian one?

Best you ask the relevant authorities about this.
I suspect you cannot use a permit as a visa.

No, you cannot.  A permesso de soggiorno is NOT a visa, passport or travel document.  It simply is a document that shows the right to live in Italy!

You should contact a Norwegian uni for a program of study, then apply at the Norway embassy for a student visa.
