Welcome to the Faculty of Social Sciences!
This information is aimed at international exchange students who have been admitted to studies at UiO, in order to prepare for their arrival and semester start. Are you looking for admission to UiO?
The Orientation week for international exchange students is a week of events to help new students settle in, get to know Oslo, meet people and have fun!
The Faculty of Social Sciences divides all our new international exchange students into buddy groups. The timetable for each group will be published on this page as semester start approaches. We will also send an e-mail with a link to your group.
We highly recommend that you organise your travel to Oslo on time to take part in the events. The official term dates for the autumn 2017 semester are 14 August–22 December.
To help you feel settled and ‘at home’ as soon as possible, there are lots of social activities organised in the first week. 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.
