Nordiska folkhögskolan

When Nordiska was founded in 1947, after the Second World War, it was with the idea of creating a democratic and free Nordic meeting place. Today the school has a wide range of courses with over 200 participants per year. Our artistic courses are open to applicants from all Nordic countries.

Swedish folk high school differs somewhat from the corresponding educations in Denmark, Norway and Finland. The courses in Sweden are state-funded, clearly profiled and cover a whole year of full-time studies.
