Launching Oslo Science Academy

Stay Curious

After continuous dialogue with our community over the last couple of years we are proud to finally announce the launch of Oslo Science AcademyOslo Science Park will now offer knowledge as a service together with our Knowledge PartnersWe believe that this academy will benefit the society, as well as help grow our community even stronger as the #1 knowledge hub in Norway. 

 

 

Lifelong learning; Investing in your own future

Lifelong learning is crucial in order to stay relevant and up to date in today’s fast-changing world. An increasing amount of companies are realizing this and want to invest in the further development of their employees. 


Based on that, and on interesting dialogs we have had with many of you over the last couple of years, we are proud to present our very own Academy here at Oslo Science Park - for you who work here, and also for external participants.

 

 

First up; Norwegian Course Series

We know that Norwegian language courses are on the top of the wish list for many of you. Therefore, we start off our course catalog by adding "Learn Norwegian" - this fall. 

 

Oslo Science Park is a diverse place consisting of people with over 70 different nationalities encircled by Norway's strongest international research and knowledge community - the University of Oslo – part of Norway's first innovation district Oslo Science City. As our international community keeps growing so does the demand for studying Norwegian. This is only the first in a series of learning possibilities we want to offer to our community. 

 

(More collaborations are in the making, and a wider range of courses are coming in the nearest future.)

Level up; Learn Norwegian A1 & A2

Let's kick-start Oslo Science Academy by breaking the language barrier.

 

Together with NoTe (Norwegian Teaching), we're introducing somethingWhile many other organizations mostly offer online Norwegian language courseswe give you blended learning.

 

This type of learning allows flexibility in terms of your availability. In other words, it enables you to access course materials from anywhere, at any time, while enjoying the benefits of face-to-face workshops once a week.


This fall will start off with two courses: A1 - Starter Level and A2 - Elementary Level + a free kick-off event; Bobler & Babbel. We will follow up with a broader selection later. If you're at a higher proficiency level, do not despair – intermediate and advanced courses will follow.
