Workshop courses constitute more than half of the study time during the three years of study. In addition, there will be lectures, seminar sessions / courses and study excursions. The students should also expect to spend extra time in the workshop completing various assignments. The academic year is divided into project periods, one of which is somewhat longer to allow completion of the final project.

Assessment Methods

The assessment methods include written examinations and individual project assignments/ programme assignments. Some of the programme requirements will be assessed on a pass/fail basis while others will receive letter grades.

(Please refer to the curricula of the following study programmes: Norwegian Folk Art I and II).
