The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. He urges all students to stay home and not show up on campus.

Well equipped to provide online teaching

We are pleased that we will soon be able to offer our students a great alternative to campus teaching. We will be operational with online options within 24 hours.

We are working to ensure that the students are the least affected in this demanding situation.

Noroff has a long tradition of online studies. Noroff currently has 2300 active students. About 60 percent of these are online students. We are therefore well equipped to provide online teaching and will spend Thursday to move students over to our digital platforms. We expect this to be solved before the weekend, says Torjussen.

Students are contacted by their teacher

The teachers will contact students during the day, Thursday, he explains. Until then, he recommends preparing for home office. At the time of writing, no coronavirus is detected amongst students or staff at Noroff.
