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.
