KHIO Oslo National Academy of the Arts
Oslo National Academy of the Arts is Norway’s largest college of higher education in the field of arts, with over 550 students, 200 employees and more than 900 guest teachers and teachers on short-term contracts, all of whom are leading practitioners in their own discipline.
Our aim is to educate artists and designers with the ability to both reflect on, and experiment in, their chosen field and make lasting contributions to the diversity of our society.
The Oslo National Academy of the Arts is a cultural institution of significance – not least for its surroundings; one of our objectives is to develop KHiO as a cultural venue and the academy offers a wide-ranging and varied programme of cultural activities that are open to the general public. The move to the Seilduken campus has given fresh impetus to the student environment of all our specialist departments. We look forward to welcoming our students to the new future era for our study programmes in the arts
The Oslo National Academy of the Arts currently offers 24 study programmes at The Faculty of Performing Arts, The Department of Design, Visual Arts and The Art Academy.
