Can I attend school when I am staying at a reception centre?

If you are between 6 and 15 years old, you are entitled and obligated to take part in compulsory schooling in Norway.

Young people above compulsory school age, but who are under 18 and who are applying for a residence permit in Norway, are entitled to take both compulsory schooling (up to lower secondary) and upper secondary education.

Adults are entitled to 175 hours of training in the Norwegian language.

If you have any questions about this, contact the staff at the reception centre or the school or the municipality where you are staying.
