Semester start at the Faculty of Humanities

We are so pleased to still be able to welcome exchange students to the University of Bergen this spring, and we would like to invite all new international students at the Faculty of Humanities to a digital meeting on Thursday 14th January.

The offical semester dates for the spring semester is 4th January to 20th June.  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 dates. The schedules are now available in the online courses for exchange students  (note that when in the course page you must select the correct semester).

Digital Information Meeting for new international students at the Faculty of Humanities:

Time: Thursdag 14th January at 2:15 pm
