Universitetsaulaen i Bergen

International afternoon for international students and employees

It is a pleasure for us to invite employees and students to an international event in the new assembly hall that will open at the end of August. We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy Norwegian music and informative talks.


During this afternoon event students and employees can listen to Norwegian music and short talks on the weather in Bergen and on the welfare system. It will also be possible to learn more on how to crack the Norwegian code!
