We hope to allow for more group teaching from Monday 19 April

This is likely to be limited to smaller groups and to courses that are critical for concluding the academic year. Heads of Department and the Head of Academic Affairs will decide which subjects this applies to in consultation with the responsible teacher(s).

We must still cancel all practical group classes.

  • Individual teaching and practice will still be allowed. Includes accompagnateur.
  • Group rehearsals with up to 5 students are allowed.
  • It will also be possible to carry out scheduled recordings and rehearsals with an accompanist.
  • All online classes will proceed as planned.
We will consider reopening for internal concerts when the restrictions in Oslo have been lifted. Information will come. However, we do not expect to be able to organize public events before the summer.
