Exchange Program Norway
Primary education in Norway lasts for seven years. Lower secondary
education and upper secondary education last for three years each.
It consists of either general or vocational studies. General studies
comprise the Foundation Course (first year), Advanced Course I (second
year) and Advanced Course II (third year) leading to the Certificate
of Upper Secondary Education. Vocational studies comprise the Foundation
Course (first year), Advanced Course I (second year) and either
Advanced Course II (third year) or Practical training/Apprenticeship
(1-2 years) or a Trade skill test leading to a Certificate. The
final examination (trade or journeyman's examination) is the same,
regardless of whether training took pace at school or in the workplace.
Pupils in vocational courses are to be given the opportunity to
obtain the additional qualifications required for higher studies.
