Moving to Oslo

International Staff Mobility Office (ISMO) at the University of Oslo will assist recruited researchers prior to their arrival, upon their arrival and during their stay.

In concrete terms, ISMO will offer assistance with

  • residence permits,
  • finding housing,
  • help dealing with tax issues,
  • finding childcare

as well as a range of other practical challenges related to moving to a new country.

In this context, it should be underlined that it is a prerequisite that the fellows move to Norway by the time of employment and live here during the PhD.

ISMO supports incoming international staff, PhD candidates, guest researchers and their families with relocation to UiO.
