Schooling for children who are asylum seekers

Your children have the right to go to school if you have applied for asylum in Norway.

The right to attend school applies for children from 6 to 16 years of age. As the parent of a child under 16, you are required to send your child to school.

The right to attend school applies as long as it is likely that you will stay in Norway for more than 3 months.

Contact your municipality if you need help enrolling your child in school.
