Occasionally, we visit other arenas, halls, or facilities to dedicate ourselves to the most disparate activities, as wakeboard and waterski, capture the flag, trampoline, disc golf, ultimate frisbee, squash, climbing, bouldering, cross-country and alpine skiing, skating, and much, much more.

Throughout many years, Rønningen has brought its sports classes to Brazil for their study trip. This trip, which will bring us to Niteroi and Rio de Janeiro, consists of good doses of both sport and culture.

In Rio we visit the famous Christ the Redeemer statue and play many beach sports, that include beach volley, foot volley, sand football and spikeball. All this on some of the world’s most famous beaches: Copacabana and Ipanema. Here you will also find good surfing conditions. Our partner, Rio de Janeiro YMCA, boasts sporting facilities where we will play against Brazilian teams in different sports.

We will also visit favelas and play with their local youth teams. Here you will receive insights in the big differences that people experience living in Brazil, which will broaden your understanding of the world today.

It is a trip that you will never forget!

Rønningen offers an alternative to the trip abroad to all its students: a study trip in Oslo! This is a tuition-free alternative for those students that do not come along in the travels abroad.

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!
