International Day at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry
Do you wonder why an international focus has relevance for students and staff at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry? Are you considering going abroad for an exchange, but are uncertain about when, where and how to proceed?
According to tradition the annual International week is held at University of Bergen in January 2012. In this context the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry invite both students and staff to the International Day on Wednesday 18 January.
There will be held exciting presentations, cultural performances, information regarding various exchange programmes, stands in the mingling area and last but not least a competition with opportunity to win attractive prizes.
