Nord Summer School offers diverse, intensive courses for young professionals and students who wish to grow their international network, develop their intercultural communication skills, and are interested in the Arctic.

“Northern Norway is spectacular in the summer, and we believe this pilot is a good opportunity for students to both experience the arctic beauty of Norway while combining it with academic studies. We have developed a set of new courses ranging from sports science to sustainability: there is something for everyone” Gårseth-Nesbakk continues.

The city of Bodø will be filled with activities and programs of different kind, connected to its status as European Capital of Culture. This means that there is a range of activities to join, also before and after the Summer School-week.

«Although each course in the Summer School has its own time schedule, Nord University will also offer social programs for all students together some afternoons and evenings” says Gårseth-Nesbakk.
