Practical information

Schoolstart 2018/19:
The first day of school for international students is Tuesday 14th of August, 2018, 10:00 a.m. 

The last day of the school year is Thursday 13th of June, 2019.

Place:
Trondheimsveien 50J, 2007 Kjeller (Skedsmo Kommune), approx. 20 min. by car, north of Oslo. Lillestrøm is the closest town.

School day
Annual teaching time is from 8:30 a.m. to 14:00, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Tuesdays the school day ends at 13:10 p.m.

You also have to add 2 - 4 hours of mandatory Internship per week, since there is no school on Fridays. This will happen outside school hours, and most likely on Sundays in one of the OKS churches. Read more about this on the "Internship" page.

Our teaching is a combination of regular classroom teaching, group tasks, dialogue, and practical learning by participation in our church, and a variety of different projects.

Application deadline
Student intake happens rapidly from January 15 until the class is full.

For all non-EU citizens, the application deadline is 1st July. The UDI has promised to reply within the beginning of the curricular year, to all student visa applicants who apply within 1st July. We prefer to have students in place from day one, since a lot of important information will be given, and class culture is also implemented from that day on.

Demands and Expectations
Applicants must have finished high school or similar levels to be considered. We do not have an upper age limit. You need to understand and express yourself well in either Norwegian or English.

You must have a valid residence permit for the whole curricular year of 2018/2019 when the school starts in August.

Work 
It is possible to combine our school with a part-time job.

Notice: If you are an international student with a student visa, you are only allowed to work 20 hours a week, according to the UDI.

Acommodation
Our school has no student acommodation. Students are responsible to find a place to stay. The Bible school office may know about a few places to stay, but in this there is no certainty.

School fee and economy

Our school fee is NOK 14.000,- 

When the school receives your application, we will send you an invoice with the school fee + NOK 3000,- for the mandatory project trip. Altogether NOK 17.000,-. By paying the invoice, you confirm your acceptance of being our student. After this, we will send you a confirmation on your payment and a validation that you now are a student at Oslo Christian Center Bible School. You can use this confirmation in your application-process with the UDI.  For more information, read UDI’s web page:
 
It is important to notice that the minimum cost of the mandatory project trip is NOK 3000,- , however, the price may increase depending on your destination.
