Teaching English in Norway

The drama of Norway's natural world is difficult to overstate.

Teaching English in Norway

Norway: land of the Vikings, the most northerly brewery in the world and Allemannsrett: the right to pitch your tent or hike anywhere in the country. What more could you want?
Norway is a Scandinavian country, perhaps most famous for its oil rigs and fish markets. To be fair, though, this is also a country of great beauty. Dramatic fjords, beautiful snow-capped peaks, glaciers; Norway is a winter wonderland. Imagine ice fishing near your log cabin against a background of dramatic white mountains; going on a wildlife safari to spot polar bears and watch whales; watching the Northern Lights: this is Norway.
In Norway there is a wide range of outdoor activities to keep you busy. You can hike or cycle through the fjords; you can go on a wildlife safari to see king crabs, reindeer, oxen and elks; or you can head to the capital city of Oslo to sample the cuisine at some of the world’s best restaurants or watch some cultural dancing at the Folksmuseum. 
In Norway you can experience one of the most spectacular environmental phenomena: the midnight sun. During the Norwegian summer the sun never sets and for a few months, it is light 24 hours a day. During this time, people take advantage of the light and go on late-night boat trips or safaris to experience nature and wildlife during this unusual time. 

Teaching Opportunities

English is spoken throughout Norway and the education system is very good, meaning that there are not that many TEFL jobs in Norway. It is helpful if you have experience, a good education and a working knowledge of Norwegian. However, you may be able to find a job in a kindergarten, public and private schools or language schools. As in the other Scandinavian countries, the Folksuniversitet system is a good place to look for a position as an English teacher. 
Opportunities in Norway are advertised online but as many of the advertisements are in Norwegian, it may be difficult for you to find or understand. A better option is to find an agency that can place you – if you are not an EU citizen, it is not recommended to turn up in the hopes of finding a job. 
Bear in mind that Norway is a very expensive place to live, especially in Oslo.

My advice to those who are thinking about teaching abroad is just go for it!

When I finished university in July 2013, I was all for getting a graduate job and settling down into a 9-5 lifestyle. However, due to the evident current job climate, this didn’t happen. After graduation, I moved back in with my parents and found a...
