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 more than 18 000 students at the university. Around 2 000 of these are international students. We employ close to 4 000 faculty and staff. PhD candidates are paid employees, 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. In Møllendal you will find our new Faculty of Fine Art, Music and design.
