Having one of the world's most spectacular and diverse nature makes Norway a unique place to study language, culture and nature.
The school is located in the scenic and historical coastal town of Stavern. The town is ranked as the most popular Norwegian summer destination many years in a row. Having the open ocean a few meters from our facilities enables heaps of opportunities.
We invite you to participate in a one year study of Norwegian culture, nature and language. We offer a school environment with about 100 Norwegian students, who will enable you to practice language skills 24/7. These are students studying diverse subjects as watersports, hiking, traveling, kickboxing, gymnastics, music, theatre and other activities. In our electives you will have the opportunity to take part in all of the above and more.

I got the best memories in my life at Stavern folkehøyskole and the Norwegian Class. These are memories that will stay with me forever. The scenery close to both sea and forest gives you opportunities to enjoy beautiful nature whenever you want to.

What are todays students saying?
Stavern folkehøyskole is a great place. It is always something going on and something to do. I've learned lots of Norwegian and i am really enjoying the Saturday seminars and trips around the country.
You have the opportunity to meet people from all cultures and learn from them. I've learned the way Norwegians write, talk, live and eat, and the impotrance of being happy and comfortable with yourself

It is a great school not only because of the welcoming environment, but because its the sunniest town in Norway. The coolest thing we've done so far is go to Mølen, a rocky beach nearby!
