Citizens and residents of Norway have access to free public schooling, but expats may prefer the option of private or international schooling for their children. International schools in Oslo generally offer the International Baccalaureate (IB), although there are also French and German schools, and schools that offer the British IGSCE at middle school level, providing expats with more choice for their kids.
