Students from different countries and Visas
Høgtun accept students from any country, but there are different procedures for students from different countries. I will here give an explanation. Most students have to pay a guarantee sum before applying for the VISA

Students from countries that could go to Norway on holidays for three months on tourist-visa without applying before entry does still have to apply for a student visa before entry. They need to pay the guarantee-sum before applying, but they will get av visa (but only for one year – they can not apply for a second year at folk high school)

Students from countries in red group will normally not get the visa at all.
Afghanistan, Demokratisk Republikk Kongo (DRC), Djibouti, Eritrea, Etiopia, Gambia, Irak, Libya, Nord-Korea, Somalia, statsløse borgere, Sudan, Syria, Sør-Sudan
On this background – Høgtun will not accept students from red group, and not students from orange group that have not been to then Schengen area before. The reason is that is is no point since the Visa will be declined anyway. It will only be waist of time and resources from
the applicant to go through the prosess.
What things do I need to bringWe normally want to speak to all the international students before they arrive, and one of the things is to explain what personal equipment is needed for each main course.
