Welcome to NLA University College!
NLA is a private and Christian institution and therefore we are a bit different from most other universities/university colleges in Norway. We are different, but not too different. NLA University College is accredited by the Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education. This means that the academic level and standard is the same as in public universities. Based on the feedback we get from our students, we can claim that students feel more welcome and better taken care of at NLA, than at larger institutions.
We treasure quality, fellowship and values - both academically and socially. We want NLA to be a place where you feel welcome, whether you are visiting for a short period of time, study here for a semester or take a full degree. We provide you with an interesting academic environment, with faculty devoted to teaching and research. We have a service minded staff that will guide you through practical/administrative issues, and we have an active and including student environment.
We offer non-degree programs in Political Science and Intercultural Communication: Field Experience, and courses in Contemporary Missiology taught in English. In all other programs the language of instruction is Norwegian. We are working on providing master programs taught in English. It is not decided yet which master program we will offer in the autumn 2014.
