Major subjects

Elverum Folk High School has nine different main subjects to choose from. Challenge yourself with music, arts, photography, extreme sports, outdoor life, Norwegian language, handball, aid work or on a snowboard or skis.

The varied line offer means that many different people choose Elverum Folk High School. That way we get a good diversity at school, with a lot of creativity and different opinions and views.

At Elverum Folk High School, we have main subjects where you get to express yourself, challenge yourself and you get to know many new people from all over Norway - and the whole world.

Line days and line weeks

Each week you have 13 line hours. Wednesday and Thursday are line days where we are mainly on the lines during the day, before there are different electives in the afternoon and evening.

Every semester we have several weeks dedicated to the main subjects only, where the whole week is spent on workshops, larger projects, study trips and collaboration with other classes.

In addition to the lines

The Main Subjects form only one part of the folk high school year. In addition, you choose electives and you have common subjects, theme weeks and seminars together with the rest of the school. This helps to fill up your weekly schedule.

The social life outside the teaching also plays a big role. The meals, boarding school life, student evenings, program evenings, cooperation in the student council and endless other things help to make the folk high school year complete.

A lot of "magic" happens when 130 people meet with a common goal of creating memories for life!
