How to register/apply for Norwegian Language Courses

First: book an appointment by filling in this  form  (Use Chrome!) Because of the corona virus, most  interviews take place on the Internet (WhatsApp). After you have booked the appointment, you will receive a confirmation via SMS, and a consultant from the Service Centre will call you. Then a consultant from the Service Centre will call you when you have the appointment.

This is a temporary arrangement due to the risk of corona infection. From August, we gradually re-open the office and arrange some admission interviews there too. This, and tests, will be conducted in accordance with the rules for infection control.


Opening hours
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are reserved for applicants with an appointment. 

Drop-in: Applicants without an appointment can only come to apply for Norwegian courses /Primary school on Mondays (12-18). Without an appointment, you have to expect some waiting time. Please note that only a few applicants may enter at a time.

The admission interview is normally at Oslo Voksenopplæring Servicesenter at Helsfyr.
Please bring your ID with a photo and documentation of your residence permit (in your passport, residence card) or a letter from the police/the immigration authorities.

When you register, you will talk with an admission counsellor who also will assess your level in Norwegian. Most applicants will also be asked to take a placement test on a computer. The process may take up to a couple of hours.

Are you a former student at one of our schools? If it is less than a year since you left the course, you can contact your school directly to sign up for a course.
