The University of Bergen (UiB) is an internationally recognised research university. Academic diversity and high quality are fundamental for us. UiB is the most cited university in Norway.
There are seven faculties at UiB and there are a total of 16 400 students at the university. Around 1 550 of these are international students. We employ 3 600 staff. PhD candidates are paid employees of staff, making the doctoral degree at UiB particularly attractive for rising talent. About one in three graduating doctors are from outside Norway.
The University of Bergen has most of its premises concentrated in two areas. Mathematics and natural sciences, social sciences, psychology, the humanities and arts and law are taught at Nygårdshøyden, a mixture of houses, shops and seats of learning. Årstadvollen is the University's "health campus", where dentistry, medicine and health-care lie close to the Haukeland and Haraldsplass university clinics.
