Coronavirus

The Folk high schools will be open as normal in the autumn. The admissions process for the next school year is well under way.

Here are answers to some general questions relating to the  folk high schools and the coronavirus. For more specific questions, please contact the individual school.

The Norwegian borders are closed to people from a large number of countries due to corona. Students who are entering Norway to go to a folk high school are exempt from this border closure.

We will keep the information on this page up to date, but we also urge you to follow the recommendations of the Norwegian authorities in relation to coronavirus, which can be found on the Norwegian Institute of Public Health website
