Training with a focus on ball sports. Develop technique, physical strength and endurance and learn to grow as a team player. Try new sports, in- and outdoors. Great facilities!

Joy - community - mastery

Did you never get enough activity and sports at school? Get ready for a year of sporting joy, development and challenges. Sometimes intense effort and dripping sweat. At other times close duels and trembling tension. Sometimes victory, other times loss. But still always a bit of cheer, laughter, well-being and happy smiles.

The sporting focus is on ball sports and versatility. The goal is for you to develop as a person and athlete, and experience the joy of activity, community and mastery. Throughout the year, you will also gain some experience as an instructor, organiser, official and referee.


The form of activity will vary between play, training, games, competitions/matches and tournaments. We will also have some joint activity with other majors when it is natural.

International student at Nordvestlandet folkehøgskole!

As an international student at Nordvestlandet folkehøgskole you will attend to the "International course". Here you will learn the Norwegian language.

You will combine this with one of our nine "major subjects" whithin sports, outdoor life and arts. This way you will experience one year at a traditional Norwegian folk high school while learning the Norwegian language at the same time. The school has 100 students and about 10 of these are foreign students with no knowledge of the Norwegian language. These students constitute the international course.

We have much experience in hosting internationals, and strive to give you the best information in how to apply and to get here.

Nordvestlandet folkehøgskole is located in the county Møre og Romsdal which is famous for its beautiful nature and many fjords. Among them the Geiranger fjord which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
