International Classes

Manglerud skole, International Classes is Oslo's new city-wide public international education program. The International Classes are a separate entity under Manglerud skole. The program opened for entry August 2016. The language of instruction is English. Norwegian is taught as a first and as a second language. 

The Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training has autorized the programme with a trial period for four years, from 2016/17 to 2019/20. 

Manglerud skole, International Classes is a candidate school* for the Primary Years Programme.  This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy - a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Manglerud Skole believes is important for our students. The International Baccalauerate Organisation states that:

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit
