Orientaton week and buddy activities for international students
The Orientation week for new international students is a week of events to help new students settle in, get to know Oslo, meet people and have fun! We highly recommend that you organise your travel to Oslo on time to take part in the events.
To help you feel settled and ‘at home’ as soon as possible, there are lots of social activities organised in this period. There will be buddy activities both during the day and in the evening so you will not be short of plans during your first week.
The Faculty of Social Sciences has divided all new international exchange students arriving in August into buddy groups. We will send an e-mail with information about your buddy group and orientation week by mid-December 2017.
