OsloMet International Summer School

OsloMet International Summer School in July 2021 is cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Do you want to take an intensive course over the summer and the opportunity to learn in an international, innovative and collaborative environment while making friends and growing your international professional network? Apply to come to Oslo for four weeks in July.

Our summer school consists of four-week courses of 5 or 10 ECTS credits. The 10 ECTS versions require independent work in addition to the four weeks of summer school. 

The summer school is created with different disciplines and skill levels in mind. We offer courses to anyone interested in learning more about technology and how to incorporate the technology into their respective disciplines and professions.

Please note that OsloMet reserves the right to offer courses depending on the level of enrollment.

    General daily schedule

    The day-to-day schedule may vary from course to course. Course teachers will share their schedule at the start of the summer school.

    Cultural and social programme

    We organise cultural and social activities two to three afternoons a week and during the weekends.

    Activities include a walk around Sognsvann, visiting Aker Brygge Harbour, the Ekeberg Sculpture Park, the Munch Museum, the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, BBQ in the park, bowling, a visit to Huk beach and a boat tour on the Oslo Fjord.

  • Innovation camp

    Innovation camps are short, typically one to three days, intensive events where technology developers work to create new technological solutions that help solve real-life problems.

    It is an excellent opportunity for students to engage in practice-based learning while working with government, industry and civil society partners to engage in creating new solutions to social, business, and technical challenges. The camps vary broadly in themes and cases.

    Innovation camp 2018

    The challenge was presented by the civil society organisation Centre for Reproductive Rights from Kenya. The challenge was to create innovation in how pregnant women in rural areas access health services, to make pregnancy safer for women and children.

    After being presented with the challenge on the first day of camp, lunch was served, and then the groups met to brainstorm and develop an idea.

    On the second day, the students heard two inspirational speeches by invited guests, and received a course in pitching in time for the finals. The rest of the day was dedicated to working on their projects.

    The third and last day, all the groups presented their pitches with only five minutes for each group. The panel of judges chose two winners, one for the most practical idea and the other for the most radical.

    The winners received their prizes and some will continue to collaborate with the university to develop their idea.

Oslo in the summertime

The sun doesn't set until close to midnight, and even then it never really gets dark. You can spend the evening watching the light change at an outdoor café with friends, or go for a relaxing swim in the fjord alone. Oslo in the summer is a pretty magical place.
