Norwegian language training

At the University College we offer all non-Norwegian speaking employees the opportunity to enrol in Norwegian classes. The classes can be on a one-to-one basis or in a group (preffered), depending on how many sign up for each class.

 This is not mandatory for all the employees, but as the working language at the University College is Norwegian, this would be beneficial to quickly integrate into the Norwegian society.
