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.

The Goal In addition to the Norwegian course you will get the opportunity to participate in various cultural activities, and study different subjects together with Norwegian students both inside and outside Rønningen.

This contributes to your integration, and makes it easy to get to know Norwegian fellow students and thus practise your Norwegian.
