Welcome to the Norwegian Study Centre (NSC), York


We are a friendly and open department in the University of York, established by the Norwegian government as one of its four international study centres. With long experience and ongoing devotion, we teach students from Norwegian Universities and Colleges and practising teachers of English as well as various groups from the public and private sector.

Please explore our webpages to learn more about what the NSC has to offer. You can come here for shorter courses of 1-2 weeks, or a longer exchange programme for up to two full terms.

If you have any questions, or if there is anything more you would like to know, please do contact us and we will do our best to help.

We hope to see you in York soon.
