Buddy week for new exchange students
New international exchange students are invited to take part in a buddy week during the start of the semester.
Most events and activities during the buddy week will be organised by your buddy group and your Faculty. In the buddy group you will make friends, get the opportunity to take part in several enjoyable events and get to know your faculty and the campus.
You will receive more information from your faculty about all the activities during the buddy week.
Joint events for all international students
With your buddy group, you can also choose to attend joint events for all the international students, such as:
- Welcome Ceremony - a traditional ceremony at the University Square.
- Blindern Games - outdoor games and barbeque on Thursday 17 August.
- Studentslippet - get to know the city of Oslo on Saturday 19 August.
- Student Association day - meet the associations on Monday 21 August.
