Meet Your Faculty

Faculty meetings will be held Friday 12 August, but the time will vary depending on which faculty you belong to. We will link to the faculty page below as the details are updated.

Mentor Week activities

The Mentor Week programmes are filled with a number of social and cultural activities. How about lunch in the park or a sporting event to get to know your new study buddies? Your student mentors will also guide you around campus and Bergen to give you a taste of student life in Bergen.
