New International Students

Congratulations! The hard work has paid off, autumn 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.


Monday January 9


10:15 to 11:00 Faculty Orientation Meeting, Sophus Bugges hus, aud.1

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, meet the Examination office, get familiarized with our student IT services and learn useful practical information regarding your stay.


11:00 to 12:00 Meet your buddy, Sophus Bugges hus, aud. 1

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


12:30 Lunch, Frederikke Spiseri, konferansedelen

It will be a perfect opportunity to mingle with international students from all over the world and to meet administrative staff members.


We can’t wait to seeing you all on our campus!
