The parties believe that funding for higher education in the arts must be better secured in the state budgets.
Small, specialized colleges in the arts field have seen their future growth opportunities disappear over the past six months. This applies to AHO, KHiO, and NMH.
The proposal for the 2024 state budget, presented on October 6, continues the changes in the funding system introduced in the "Utsynsmeldinga" delivered by the Ministry of Education and Research in the spring of 2023.
"It's not this year's budget that is influenced by the funding system," says Principal Astrid Kvalbein, "but rather future study positions when the needs in society change."
The leadership at NMH will also focus on other important issues for the sector with the Government's budget proposal.
