Right In the Middle of Bergen

We are located in a grand, modern and historical building in Nygaten, right in the middle of Bergen.

We offer a Research Program

In our Research Program for students, young people are allowed to use what they have learned in class in different research projects, while working in smaller teams. Dissemination of the research results is an important part of the program. Tuition fees for the Research Program include a school trip to Japan during the students’ VG3 year. Read more.

Homework Assistance

Every Tuesday from 2 PM to 3:30 PM and Wednesday from 3:45 PM to 5 PM, students are offered homework assistance at school. A science/math teacher will always be present at these sessions. On Wednesdays, the students will also be offered a warm meal before homework begins.


Your own Apple Mac Computer

Tuitions fees at Danielsen Videregående Skole include mandatory rental of an Apple Mac computer, which is handed out to the student at the beginning of their first school year. After three years at Danielsen Videregående Skole, students are allowed to keep their Apple Mac computer. Students of Healthcare, Childhood and Youth Development are allowed to keep the computer after two years at the school if they continue in apprenticeships.

School Trips Abroad

For students at Danielsen Videregående Skole, there are plenty of opportunities to travel abroad on school trips. Germany, France, the UK, Spain, Israel, and the US are relevant destinations for students, depending on their program subjects. .
