        EOA CORONA Update : Oslo

        Oslo EOA Modules : CANCELLED

        It is with great regret that our colleagues from the National Academy of Arts from OSLO informed us about the decision that the institution has made regarding the Erasmus programme for the next academic year, and that, de facto, affects the EOA programme.

        Due to the current COVID19 outbreak, the institution will neither welcome any incoming nor support outgoing exchange students for the rest of 2020. As a consequence of that, the application for the following EOA Oslo Modules is Cancelled:

        OSL 1. Opera Production

        OSL 2. Italian Opera

        The application for the module OSL 3. Audition Training (15th March to 15th June 2021) remains OPEN.
