Congratulations! The hard work has paid off, summer exams are out of the way and you are finally planning your arrival in Oslo, and we can’t wait to meet you!

Coming to study and live in a new country is a life changing experience, and we aim to help ensure that you receive a warm welcome and that your first weeks run as smoothly as possible.

We start the week with a meeting where you will be greeted by Professor Eirik Welo, the Dean of Studies and Education at the faculty,  learn about examinations and rules, become familiarized with our student IT services and get to know some practical information regarding your stay.

Once all the unexciting, but important stuff is out of the way, it’s time to get to know your buddy group.
