Checklist for new master's students

What you should do before starting your studies

1. Attend information meetings on your program, and sign up for social activities during the study start week

The study programs arrange welcome and information meetings where you meet fellow students and teachers, and you get all the information and help you need to get started. See the time and place for information meetings on the program pages for your study program.

2. Create an UiO password

All students are sent a username by SMS before they start studying. You create the password yourself here.

If you did not get your username or forgot your password, read this.

3. Get to know UiO's routines for infection control and take infection control courses

Everyone who is going to stay at the university must take a mandatory infection control course before they come to campus.

You can take the course in infection control at the beginning of August after receiving a username and password.

4. Pay the semester fee

It is a good idea to pay in Studentweb as soon as possible so that you can get an access card at UiO and a loan from Lånekassen. Read more about the semester fee.

5. Register for the semester and sign up for teaching in Studentweb

You should do this as soon as possible so that you have access to teaching resources in Canvas.

6. Obtain a valid student ID

Once you have paid the semester fee and registered in Studentweb, you can get a valid student certificate. Download the mobile app Studentbevis, or order a semester receipt on paper.

This is your proof that you are a student this fall.

7. Make an appointment to obtain a student card

Student cards give you access to rooms and buildings at UiO, can be used as library cards at our libraries and allow you to do printouts on printers with card readers.

You must book an appointment and pick up your student card at SiO Customer Center in Kristian Ottosen's house on Blindern.
