Buddy system for new international students
The Buddy system helps new students establish a social and academic network as soon as they arrive at the university.
All new international Degree students are automatically signed up for a buddy group
All new international Exchange Students must register here and inform us about your field of study
In a buddy group you will get:
- The possibility to join a social network and make friends from your first day at the university.
- The possiblity to take part in several enjoyable events such as concerts and theater shows with your buddy group.
- A tour of the UiO campus
The buddy group
Each buddy group is made up of two-three buddies and 15 - 20 new international students. As a member of a buddy group you will meet other students from your study programme or related academic field, who are also new at the university. The buddies have already studied at the university for some time and know what it is like to be a student. They are familiar with the joys and sorrows of student life and are there to answer any questions you might have about student life at the university and in Norway.
