Sports outdoor allround is called IFA. IFA will give you a taste of a lot of different sports, well known and unknown alike. (See also the menu underneath). You don’t have to be a “sportsman”, you can be a newbie. It doesn’t matter if you have never tried any of the sports mentioned, since both physical and technical skills will be developed as we progress through the year. Some days will be tiresome, while other days will be filled with games, trips and a bonfire. You will get to try many different sports, but you might not become an expert in everything. To be a student in IFA can be a fun way to get in a better physical shape, since it evolves around many different kinds of activites such as, ball sports, sports, fitness, wildlife activities and of course fun and games.
Every week is an exciting day for the students at IFA, where the students will be challanged on their skills and enthusiasm. An example of the “weekly challange” is the Tour de Møre, wich is a four day bicycle trip through some of the most beautiful norwegian moutains and fjords. We start at the school and visit places like Trollstigen, Geiranger and Norangsdalen, and then back again. Most of the weekly challenges are unknown and secret, and will first be revealed at the start of a new school week. The challenges will all be diverse, however none will pose the risk of health or injury.

This course is one of the 10 main courses provided at Høgtun and runs normally from Wednesday after lunch through to the rest of the week. As an international student, you will have to take the Learning Norwegian course as well. You will normally have Learning Norwegian before lunch Monday through Wednesday. After lunch Monday and Tuesday you get to choose optional subjects described in the courses and trips section.
Some main courses have their own trips with the class in addition to this. (Horse, Powder, Bootcamp, Creative and Fotball).
These trips are mandatory (and included in the price given for that course).
Other classes have one of the 6 November trips as a part of class. (e.g Alpine adventure – Spain have the climping in Spain trip as a part of the main course.) This means that the Climbing Spain trip is recommended as a November choice for this class. But it is not mandatory. Students in this class could select one of the other November trips if they want to. The price for the November trips is given on the presentation page for that trip, and is not included in any main course price.
The learning Norwegian plus course have Norway as recommended trip, but you select whatever you want.
