Welcome Programme

Participate in the Welcome Programme for new international students at the start of the semester.

International students in the university aula
The Welcome Programme offers a great chance to meet other new students.

Stay tuned for UiB's spring semester Welcome Programme 2020. The programme will introduce you to different aspects of being a student in Bergen.

Joining is 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.
