Take the pictures you have dreamt about! PhotoVideo is the place for those who want to tell the best stories with pictures and films.

In the PhotVideo class, we learn to brew every-day magic by focusing on the same objective: to have fun while working together trying to tell those stories.

The school lies in Oslo. The capital city is waiting for us. You receive a travel card from the school, with which you have access to the city’s public transport, that puts you a half-hour away from most locations in the city, be it sea, city center, or forest. But this vicinity also means that we collaborate with various medias in the city, we visit well-known photographers and TV-studios, go to expositions, participate in workshops, and explore the city on our own. 

Who is this class suitable for?

Every year thousands of photographers and designers travel to Berlin to be inspired, and among them, us. For a period of up to three weeks, we will live there as artists and make one of the world’s creative meccas to our own.

Here a contrast plays out between the emerging but still unknown young art scene and the biggest stars at international level. Berlin enjoys a plethora of artistic arenas, from the underground to the hippy and punk culture, from the urban to magnificent green areas all in beautiful harmony. Old architecture meets modern neighborhoods where the Berlin wall once took up space.

We explore political street art, visit markets – or perhaps you fancy settling down for a picnic on a decommissioned airport? We study old masters in the numerous museums and visit photographers and designers to see how they work. We experience cultures and foods from all over the world (Berlin has the world’s best kebab!!), in addition to fantastic flea markets. When we are not occupied by working with our own projects, we go and see all from underground project studios, well hidden from most, to fancy and more commercial galleries in remodeled factories. On the way back, we stop at the beach city Warnemünde, where we find the peace to draw and take pictures on the shore before heading back to Oslo again

A perfect environment in which to deepen your knowledge about Norwegian language, Norwegian culture, intercultural understanding – and yourself. 

You will receive 200 hours basic Norwegian course, with an option to add 50 hours for an even higher level.

In addition to the Norwegian course, you will also attend one of the school`s linjer togheter with other norwegian students. You can choose between these linjer: sports, art, music production, photo, singing and dancing.

We believe this is the ultimate combination to get you from a beginners level to a conversational level much faster, because you spend time on a activity that you love, together with other norwegian speaking students. 

You are invited to attend a study trip abroad with your choosen linje.

The whole school will also go on exciting trips during the year; we will explore wonderful Nordmarka, go skiing in Hallingdal and stay at Strandheim campsite by the Oslofjord.

We strive to give every student challenges on their level, based on their background and goals. A variety of teaching methods are used, and the teacher encourages you to build awareness on what are your best ways to learn and develop. 

As our school is the only folkehøgskole situated in Oslo you have a unique chance to explore the capital city of Norway and all the opportunities this city can offer.

Welcome to a year at Rønningen folkehøgskole!
