group of participants in a previous training in Johannesburg


The main purpose of the preparatory training is to prepare the participants for living and working in a new culture. The training is mandatory for all participants in Norec’s programs and consists of two parts. First, you will be enrolled in an e-learning course five weeks before we meet.

During the training we go through the following modules:

  • Being a Norec participant
  • Communicating about your exchange
  • Intercultural adjustment in the Norec role
  • Health, safety and security
  • Global Understanding
  • Registration

    Upon approval of your Norec project, we will send a sign up link to the coordinating partner. Registration will be open 3 months before the training starts. The coordinating partner is responsible for submitting names and contact information for each participant before the deadline 7th August 2023.

    Shortly after the deadline Norec will send a digital pre-training to each participant. This pre-training consists of important information about Norec, the participant’s role and responsibilities, a checklist and an overview of the onsite training.

    At the same time we will send out a link for transport registration for your airport pickup as well as dietary requirements for the stay. Make sure to submit these details two weeks before the training starts.

  • Travel arrangements

    Upon registration it’s the coordinating partner’s responsibility to facilitate the purchase of flight tickets.  As the training starts Sunday at 4 PM, we want to make sure all participants are present. Hence, Norec covers full board from the 30th of September to the 7th October to make sure you arrive in time and do not miss our farwell party.


  • Details

    Full board and lodging at the training is covered by Norec.

    Extra nights before/after the training must be covered by the partnership. This means you will need to get approval from your program advisor first for these extra expenses.

    Travel costs are funded through the Collaboration Agreement budget, covered by the partner.

    We will make sure that the hotel will follow Coronavirus guidelines regarding hygiene, etc.

    If you need help obtaining a visa and/or a hotel confirmation letter, contact your program advisor or Norec’s training team via training@norec.no.
