Study in Oslo
MF is situated at Majorstua, in central Oslo. In Oslo, you can combine high-quality education with unforgettable outdoor experiences, both winter and summer. Oslo is a friendly and exciting city where you can find everything you need within a short distance from the downtown area. Most Norwegians speak English fluently.
Oslo has a vibrant cultural scene with many museums, art galleries and music venues. The city also has excellent public transportation which takes you all around the city, out to the small islands in the summer and up to the ski slopes in the winter.
Norway is known for its beautiful outdoors, and all of this is easily accessible from Oslo. You can travel to see the northern lights, experience the midnight sun, and discover beautiful fjords and mountains all over the country.
