UiB's spring semester Welcome Programme is taking place 4-5 January 2018. You will be introduced to different aspects of being a student in Bergen through practical information and entertaining lectures.

The programme is is also an excellent opportunity to meet other international students, as well as ask questions to UiB staff members. Attendance is not obligatory, but we highly encourage all new international students to come. Pre-registration is not required. 

The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) has planned a social week for all new international students.
