Anti-Islamic terrorist Anders Behring Breivik will be allowed to study at Oslo University if his application is accepted, his prison governor has told Norway's TV 2 channel.
"We are going to allow him to study, but it will be self-study in his cell," Knut Bjarkeid, the governor of Ila Prison said.  "He will not be able to visit the university, exams will take place at Ila, and there will be no internet connection to the university." 
 
According to TV 2, Breivik, who dropped out of school before graduating, has already been studying to complete his high school diploma. 
 
"We know for a fact that formal education provides more opportunities to get a job, and that recidivism is reduced among those that get a job," Bjarkeid added. 
 
Breivik is serving a 21-year sentence for killing 77 people and wounding 242 others in a gun and bomb massacre in July 2011.
