Telemark is known as “Norway in miniature” and is a region known for its rich cultural tradition and outdoor life. The town of Bø, with a population of 5,000, becomes an active student town during the academic year when students from different parts of Norway, and different parts of the world, come together to create a diverse campus community. The University College of Southeast Norway at Telemark provides the opportunity to study in the natural landscape, engage in an active campus community, and experience the rich natural heritage of Norway.

The PLU comprehensive fee for a semester covers this academic experience (instruction and academic credit, housing and meal stipend, study tours, study abroad insurance, visa fees and $750 flight credit). To find the current comprehensive fee for one semester, divide the total full-year cost listed on the Admissions website by two. Please note that the comprehensive fee varies each year, and the cost of this program will be based on the year in which you study away. Financial aid applies.

Out-pocket expenses include: roundtrip air travel balance after the $750 flight credit, books, personal excursions, and other miscellaneous expenses
