In Norway, all children and young people aged 6–16 have a right and obligation to take primary and lower secondary education. This education is free of charge.
Children who come to Norway during the school year will be offered a place at a school as soon as possible.
Compulsory education is divided into two main parts.
- Primary school: Years 1–7 (age 6–12)
- Lower secondary school: Years 8–10 (age 13–15)
Please contact the municipality where you live for more information about the education available for your child.
