The 78 folk high schools in Norway invite international students to experience a unique year.
Folk high schools are one-year boarding schools based on the idea of learning for life, not only for occupations and degrees. We provide an opportunity for you as a student to focus on subjects that interest you and to grow as a person, in a small and close-knit learning community without exams and grades. These are schools where you broaden your horizon, deepen your social insights, get more confidence in yourself, and learn tools for lifelong learning. Some schools also offer classes in Norwegian language and culture.
