Norwegian Language Courses

The Sars Centre offers non-Norwegian speaking employees the opportunity to attend basic Norwegian language courses partially financed by the Centre.


The Centre will reimburse employees for 2/3 of the cost of basic Norwegian language courses (including books). Folkeuniversitetet courses (Norskkurs A1 Begynnernivå - B1 Mellomnivå del B) or UoB courses NOR-U1 and NOR-U2 will be reimbursed if the following conditions are met:

1. Completion of ALL modules
2. Diploma confirming completion and receipt for payment are presented to the admin office

NOTE: UoB courses are paid in advance by Sars, failure to provide diploma at semester end will result in employee being charged in full for the course.

Language Course Alternatives:

1. The University of Bergen offers Norwegian courses for employees and students. UoB employees and students have first priority and Uni Research employees may therefore find enrollment difficult. Click here for more info.
