Study Abroad in the US for a Year

VG2 at an American School

Every year, up to 30 Danielsen students go to the United States to spend their VG2 year at one of our Christian sister schools there. These students continue their VG3 year when they return to Norway.

This exchange program is approved by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research. It is based on an agreement with the American schools whereby the students are offered customised subjects, so that they will have a sound basis for continuing their studies at level VG3 when they return. Teachers and staff from Danielsen Videregående Skole have visited the American schools on several occasions. VG1 students from Danielsen have preference of enrolment at the American schools.

For the academic year 2019/20, students receive a grant from the Norwegian State Educational Loan Fund to partially cover tuition fees (85%). They also receive a student living allowance and a travel grant. In total, these grants amount to about NOK 140,000. In addition to this, the students’ own expenses are not expected to exceed NOK 60,000. Exchange students will have to provide their own pocket money.
