Six reasons to study at UiB
World-class scientists, city campus, programmes and courses taught in English. We give you six good reasons to become a UiB student.
1. Learn from world-class scientists
Our lecturers are also researchers. Many of them are among the international elite in their academic fields.
2. Choose from a wide range of courses taught in English
3. Join an innovative university
UiB offers excellent facilities: well-equipped auditoriums, laboratories and computer labs. UiB takes pride in innovation and early adoption of modern technologies for students and staff, and we are leading in Norway when it comes to using digital examinations.
- Johannes from Germany says it's a great advantage that master's students get their own private study desk
4. Benefit from our housing guarantee
We are proud to offer a housing guarantee to all international applicants meeting set deadlines. The Student Welfare Organisation in Bergen (Sammen) also offers health care, career and counselling services as well as sports activities and cafés.
5. Study in the heart of beautiful Bergen
UiB's campus is integrated into the fabric of the city. Most of UiB's faculties, libraries and study halls are located close to Nygårdshøyden in the heart of Bergen, mingled among cafés, sports halls, parks and shops.
6. Enjoy Norwegian informality
Our students find that it’s easy to approach professors, interact with our staff and connect with other students on equal terms due to our egalitarian Norwegian culture. We think that an informal learning environment benefits both our students and our staff.
