Norwegian Language and Literature Courses for those with a Foreign-Language Perspective
These courses are aimed mainly at these groups:
- International students who have studied Norwegian at the higher level (B2 or C1 level) and wish to improve their Norwegian skills and knowledge.
- Incoming international students who wish to study Norwegian in order to teach Norwegian in their homeland.
- Norwegian students who took Norwegian as a second language in high school, or have other reasons for wanting to further develop their knowledge and skills in Norwegian.

Four of these courses (40 credits) may be taken together as a subject group as a part of a bachelor`s program, but this only applies to certain programs.

When taken as a part of a 40-group, at least three courses must be in the language or applied linguistics category, while the fourth course may be a literature course.
