NLA offers a semester program in Education at campus Sandviken in Bergen, Western Norway. The program will be offered both in the spring semester (late-January to late-May) 2025 and the autumn semester (mid-August to mid-December) 2025.

About the semester program 

The semester program consists of two courses on bachelor level: 

The courses consist of weekly seminars of 3 hours each, where students are challenged to discuss and reflect on educational challenges and opportunities related to global crises, social injustice, forced displacement, trauma-affected children, and vulnerability.  

The course seminars are research-based, practice-oriented, and student-centered. Students are exposed to a range of global educational research, including research projects led by the course lecturers. Through case-studies and group-work, students are also able to discern how theoretical research can be applied in the real world, including classrooms and other pedagogical settings in Scandinavia and beyond. 

Students in the semester program in Education will study together with NLA’s full-degree students. The language of instruction is English.
