• 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.

All together are there six subjects, four that focus on the language itself, and two that focus specifically on literature. Each of the courses are 10 credits.

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