The MN Faculty welcomes new exchange students

We hope your stay in Norway and at the University of Oslo will be a fun, meaningful and important learning experience.

The buddy system starts Monday 13 August 2018. You will be placed in a buddy group with other new exchange students. The buddies are both Norwegian and international students at our Faculty.

The buddy program student coordinator is Tania-Adelina Bulz and she has written a welcome letter just for you!

There is a Facebook group just for you, make sure you check it out! The buddy groups will be listed here and on Facebook shortly.

Changes may occur to the program below, and we will update it shortly with information about where to meet up for the different activities.
