Other opportunities

Many other student possibilities are available both in Norway and abroad. Here we provide an overview of various education programs. 

NAROM (Norwegian Centre for Space-related Education) is a great resource for the overview of space related education in Norway and abroad at different levels of education (high-school, university). You can see the overview of activities on the NAROM website.

Norwegian Space Center (NSC) as well as the European Space Agency / Education  provide unique opportunities, such as master thesis in microgravity, student satellites, student conference program and summer schools. For some of these activities, the Norwegian Space Center offers student scholarships. 

Several schools and workshops are also organized by different institutions.
