ABOUT THE SUMMER ACADEMY COURSE
Our aim is to provide participants with high-quality training and musical inspiration.
The Summer Academy is continuously evolving, with the Norwegian Academy of Music as its main collaborative partner. The Summer Academy also cooperates closely with the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Royal College of Music in London, The Royal Danish Academy of Music, School of Music Ingesund, Dextra Musica, Sparebankstiftelsen and the Swedish – Norwegian Cooperation Fund.
Participants will earn 3 ECTS for the course at Voksenåsen. The student must meet the general admission standards for Norwegian Universities to earn the credits. To meet general admission standards for Norwegian Universities you need to have completed High School or the equivalent. Norwegian students at this level are generally at least 19 years old. If you were born in 2005 or later, we may require further information about your academic level for you to be able to earn the ECTS. Voksenåsen will contact those who require additional documentation.
