Main content

The offical semester starts in week 16 and ends in week 50/51. Because of the ongoing pandemic and quarantine rules we cannot offer an in-person Welcome Programme for new international students during the first week. The International Team at UiB is working to find digital alternatives that will still make you feel welcome and prepare you for the semester ahead, which you can attend from home or from your place of quarantine.

The start of your lectures will depend on which courses you have chosen, as the courses have different start-up dates. The schedules are now available at the courses for exchange students (note that you must select the correct semester).
