Now you can apply!

From 1 October we accept applications for the 2023/2024 school year.

At Elverum folk high school you get to challenge yourself in one of nine varied main subjects, and chose from more than 30 different electives. The school is situated 1,5 hours from Oslo, and you'll meet new friends from all over Norway - and all over the world.

There are no grades or exams, and you get support from the Loan Fund. There are no grade requirements from high school, and anyone can apply.

Folkehøgskole works almost like a bus stop. You get a year to wait, think and find out which bus you want to take next.

Do you want to challenge yourself with new friends?

Folkehøgskole is often referred to as a «mini-society». You live close to each other and become very well known and closely connected - often for the rest of your life.

More than 35 different electives to choose from.
