Buddy Coordinator for International Buddies

Application deadline: 25 October 2020.

The coordinator will be given a contract, where the work hours are 10% of a full-time position in "lønnstrinn" 40, approximately 3000 NOK each month.

The engagement starts as soon as possible after 1 November 2020 and lasts until 1 October 2021, but there is even a possibility of prolonging the engagement for one more year.

The coordinator will be given a thorough training.


Obviously, the situation for arriving exchange students to UiO in January 2021 will be different due to the ongoing pandemic. As the international coordinator, you would be a part of a creative team where we think differently about the integration activities, and we are looking for someone with enthusiasm for digital platforms, and with fresh ideas for how to integrate Norwegian and international students. 

Before next January the main tasks are:

  • Recruit enough buddies to new international students in January
  • Plan and execute kick-off meeting with the buddies in December, and ensure good communication with all the involved
  • Plan and execute the social arrangements for new international students in January.
  • Move social activities to digital platforms, but maintain the focus on strong social relationships

Who are we looking for?

  • You are a student at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (Norwegian or international)
  • You are an independent and efficient worker
  • You have the ability to network with others and create enthusiasm for the project
  • You are both determined and creative
  • You are available for a lot of work in November and December t.y.
  • You would like to take welcoming international students "to the next level", making it a great experience for all

Experience from student volunteer work is an advantage.
