Our Students

Norgesskolen (summer) welcomes students between the age of 9-18, but we have also had students aged 8 and 19. Norgesskolen Winter has a demographic of youth between 14-19. 

Between 70-90 students from 20-25 different countries attend each summer school, making up a diverse group of international children and youth. Up to 70% are returning students who have previously attended Norgesskolen.

The students come with very different Norwegian language skills – ranging from beginners to those who speak, write and read Norwegian quite well. When dividing students into groups we consider both age and language skills.
