Next year starts Monday August 21, 2017, and ends the first of June the year after. The Folk High Schools have no application deadlines, we take applications from the first of Feburary all the way through the start of the school year.
A year at Fosen Folk High School lasts for 36 weeks, instead of the usual 33. In those extra three weeks each course will have a chance to deepen their learning where they can just focus on thier courses' work. The school's farming and hand work profile makes it necessary to organize the year's learning around the rhythm of the seasons.
We have space for 75 students at the school. The students will live in the dormatory two to a room, however single rooms are available, as well as a small apartment that can hold three people. If you need a single room for medical or other reason you can request one by writting it in your application along with a reason. Dividing up the single rooms with be done at the start of the school year. Most students are around 20 years old, but we've had from 17 up to 64 year old students, so don't think you can't come just becasue you have grey hair! And there's usually an equal number of girls and boys.
By attending at least 90% of your classes you will recieve two points towards your higher education. However this probably is meaningless to you, as it is to me (I'm American) because without being Norwegian it won't help you, sadly. But I also still don't really know what it means.
Because the school sets a high standard for ability and willingness to take responsibility, thus we have a minimum age requirement of 18 before the 31st of december. during the school year. In certain circumstances we can accept younger students. Admissions open the first of February. If you apply before, it will be registered and you will get a messege about your placement in the school immediatly after February first. The first to apply will recieve the first places, so apply soon.
We believe people can speak together and find solutions, therefore we have a few simple rules.

-No drinking or possesing of alcohol at the school or on the properties the school owns. Being under the influence of alcohol while at school is also no acceptable.
-No use or possesion of drugs, or being under their influence while on school property.
