The Norwegian Parliament has prohibited the use of face-covering clothing in an educational setting. At all universities and colleges, it is forbidden for students and employees to use clothing that completely or partially covers the face. The law only applies in settings of teaching and instruction, and does not apply during breaks or in other areas at the institution. Violation of the provision may ultimately result in expulsion.
