Lillehammer University College | Norway
Lillehammer University College is a young institution. It is one of the three state universtity colleges in central eastern Norway bordering Lake Mjøsa. Since the start in 1971, its academic activities have been growing steadily, and we now offer a wide range of professional and vocationally oriented programmes, plus a selection of traditional academic university subjects. From the start in 1971 Lillehammer University College became a testbed for new ideas in teaching which were both academically and pedagogically different from those at the traditional institutions of higher education in Norway. The college still bears the marks of these ideas. Problem-solving, group work, project work, and close student-teacher contact are characteristics which the college has maintained also in the area of computer assisted teaching. Lillehammer University College is located in beautiful surroundings in central eastern Norway. The institution has a long tradition as education provider and is part of the Norwegian public higher education system.
