Hello and welcome
Volda University College is located in a small town on the west coast of Norway, but our perspective is international. Out of approximately 4000 students, more than 120 are exchange students. Our four faculties offer a variety of courses in their subject areas: Humanities and Education, Social Sciences and History, Art and Physical Education and Media and Journalism.
The application for a joint PhD degree between Volda University College and Molde University College has been approved. This was decided by the national quality assurance body, NOKUT, on June 19th. The first students will be able to start in the autumn semester 2015, at the earliest.
Jane Austen's worldwide popularity is not least due to the remaking of her novels for the visual media. Of the fifty-odd Austen related productions since 1938, forty-three of them adapt her novels to the various screens of cinema, television, computer and tablet. In the present book, Marie N. Sørbø investigates the function and targets of irony in two novels and seven films.
For three days 17 journalism students from Volda, Stockholm and Nizhny Novgorod in Russia have taken part in a workshop to learn about multicultural understanding and human rights.
Volda University College are looking forward to welcome next years international students! The application deadline for incoming exchange students for fall 2014 is coming up the 15th of May. We welcome potential students to send in the application documents before this date.
