About us

Fosen folkehøgskole is a folk school located in Rissa, Norway.

We offer 9 month courses, from late august until the end of may.

In addition to the chosen course, the year also consists of electives and school-wide activities like school trips, farm week etc.

Our average student is between 18 and 25 years old, but we also have older students.

All students live in the school dorms, and organic food is included in the school fee.

Classes are held in Norwegian, but all our teachers speak English as a second language and will explain in English when necessary. We expect you to try to learn Norwegian, and we offer evening classes in Norwegian language and culture.
