Your everyday studyKristiania is a place for everyone, whilst being a place where you will study along with others who share your passions. An education from Kristiania is practice-oriented, which makes our students sought-after in the labour market, even before they have finished their education. The students' own line associations make for opportunities to meet and bond on the basis of shared interests, while the incubators like Loftet and Bryggeriet creates a bustling and inspiring environment for the students' own companies.
