About the University College of Norwegian Correctional Service
KRUS offers the only primary education for prison officers in Norway through an accredited two-year programme leading to the degree University College Graduate in Correctional Studies. We also offer a supplementary course for students wanting to achieve a Bachelor's Degree in Correctional Studies. For students from our partner institutions, we offer admission to single subjects from the supplementary course. Read more about our courses.
In addition to the primary education, KRUS also offers non-accredited further education and is responsible for planning, teaching, and hosting a number of courses and conferences for employees of the correctional services and partner organisations.
KRUS is a centre of knowledge for the correctional services and partners, as well as being involved in research and professional development. Read more about our research.
