Send application

Want to get back in touch with your norwegian ancestors, explore the north part of Norway or just wish to learn a new language? Here, at our school you need no prior knowledge of Norwegian.

You choose one of the major subjects and follow this among norwegian students, but in addition you have 8 lessons a week with norwegian language. We offer major subjects within these areas:

Teaching takes place not only in the classroom, but students are also involved in long and short study tours where they can practice their language and also gain an insight into Norwegian society. 

Students will take part in cultural events at school and in the community. Students on the Norwegian line are integrated with the Norwegian students at the school. They live together in dormitories and socialise with the other students in their free time. A strength of our school is our international community between young people from different countries.

Vi ønsker med våre fellesturer å styrke skolens felleskap, gjennom å dele fine natur- og reiseopplevelser. Et viktig poeng er også å bli kjent i våre nærområder slik at du lærer litt om hvordan det er å leve i Finnmark og i Barentsregionen, nære naturen og i en region hvor ulike kulturer smelter sammen.
