Norwegian National Academy of Theatre

The Norwegian National Academy of Theatre (Norwegian: Statens teaterhøgskole) was established as a three-year theater-education in 1953, under the name of Statens teaterskole.

The school was given collegiate status in 1982. It is today one of two institutions that offer theater education on a college level, but still the only one with a line for directors.

In 1996 the National Academy of Theatre became part of Oslo National Academy of the Arts (Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo, KHiO). The National Academy of Theatre is today part of the Faculty of Performing Arts at KHiO.
