50 hours Social studies course English

This course is designed for adult immigrants who have newly arrived in Norway and who are able to study in English. The course is mandatory for those who have residency in a country outside EU/EFTA area, and want to apply for permanent residency in Norway.

The idea behind the course is to give students a comprehensive introduction to Norwegian society, the Norwegian political system, and the Norwegian way of living, as well as the rights and obligations of every Norwegian citizen. 

The course covers the following subjects defined in the curriculum for Norwegian language and civics for adult immigrants:

  1. New Immigrant in Norway
  2. History, geography and way of life
  3. Children and family
  4. Health
  5. Education and learning
  6. Working life
  7. Democracy and the welfare society 

The course participant will need to complete assignments for all seven chapters, as well as 30 minutes discussion with the teacher for each chapter. Both assignments and discussions with the teacher must be completed to obtain the course certificate. You can study in your mother tongue, but the assignments and the discussions will be in English.

Course length: There are two options for the course lengths. The regular course gives you 1-3 months to complete the course. All assignments and sessions with your tutor must be completed within this timeframe. A fast-track course is for those who need to complete the course quickly, within a minimum of 2 weeks.

All our courses are time bound

When you have a course with us, it is for a limited time period. The start date and end date of the course is clearly specified in the email you receive when you access the course.

You can not use the course after the end date, but you can extend your access by purchasing ekstra months. If you extend the course, all your results will be saved and you can continue as before. If you do not use the course during the course period, the course cannot be opened for you again later, because then the course period is over. You have to buy a new course to gain access again. We can not pause the course if you are ill, going on holiday or if you are busy with work or other things. This means that the course period cannot be stopped once it has started.
