Norgesskolen is a two-and-a-half week summer school in Norwegian language and culture. We welcome children/youth aged 9 to 18 from all over the world, both beginners and those with previous Norwegian knowledge.

Norgesskolen teaches Norwegian language and culture and has a variety of sports and outdoor life activities. Students go on hiking trips and excursions. A stay at Norgesskolen is the foundation of lifelong friendships and a fun place to learn a lot of Norwegian!

Norgesskolen is held at Sagavoll Folkehøyskolen in Gvarv in Telemark county, and both students and teachers live in dormitories on campus. Norgesskolen is a program of Nordmanns forbundet - Norwegians Worldwide.

Study in Norway

 Høyere utdanning - Oslo

A project of Diku – the Norwegian Agency for International Cooperation and Quality Enhancement in Higher Education, aimed at strengthening the quality of Norwegian education. Diku is an agency under the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

The website gives in-depth information about undergraduate and graduate studies in Norway, finding scholarships, choosing a school, areas of study, applications and more.


Folk high schools (folkehøgskole) are often called the world's freest schools. These schools have no grades, no rigid curriculum and no exams. At a folk high school, you get to practice what you learn, not merely immerse yourself in its theory.

A folk high school year lasts nine months, from August to May. Most students attend folk high schools right after graduating from high school—many as a gap-year between high school and further education. Most folk high school students are between 18 and 25 years, but a few schools accept 16-year-olds, too. No folk high school has an upper age limit.

Students from around the world can choose from a wide range of intensive courses for a six week period during the summer. Admitted students can choose between two undergraduate courses focusing on Norwegian language and various aspects of Norwegian culture and society, or chose one of the graduate courses dealing with topics of broad international interest. The ISS has also been involved in a number of special dialog and confidence-building projects for participants from conflict areas, e.g. the Middle East, the Balkans, and the Caucasus region.
