This includes:

  • All travel, all teaching materials, food and rooms - and really everything you need as a student at school except pocket money.
  • You pay NOK 2 in registration fee when you confirm that you accept the school place. This is included in the total price, but you will not get this back if you give up your place.

NB: Payment plan for 2023/2024 to come.

What does it really cost to live away from home?

Our lines cost an average of NOK 144. If you deduct NOK 168 in scholarships, a year at folk high school costs NOK 46.

If you think folk high school seems expensive, we recommend that you set up a small calculation of what it costs to live from home. Here is an example:

WhatPer month.Nine months
Rent5 000 -45 000 -
Electricity10009 000 -
Internett5004 500 -
Food3 000 -27 000 -
Transportation1 500 -13 500 -
TOTAL11 000 -99 000 -

In this example, we have been careful. Many people pay significantly more for rent, electricity, internet, food and transport - and the expenses can vary from month to month.

At Elverum FHS, everything in the table is included. In addition, you get all study tours, social events every week, access to classrooms and equipment, transport to the school's events, lectures, concerts and much, much more.

Not least, you get committed teachers who follow you up and work to ensure that you experience mastery and development.

You will receive a diploma for the completed school year, and two additional points for further education.

Extraordinary circumstances

Route plans, school plans and study tours may be changed if natural disasters or other external and extraordinary circumstances occur that are beyond the school's control and which significantly affect the implementation. In the event of changes, no financial compensation is normally given. We will do our best to work out good alternative solutions if a trip or a plan cannot be carried out.
