Field work

Students on the master’s degree programme in human geography can apply to the department for funding to partly cover expenses for field work abroad.

Important information

Field work must be carried out in a professional manner and with maximum personal safety.

The following requirements apply for approval of field work destinations:

  • The destination must be relevant to the research question studied.
  • The destination must not be located in a region or country that the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the Norwegian Institute of Public Health have advised against travelling to. See the Ministry’s web page on travel advice.
  • Students are obliged to read UiO’s advice on safety when abroad and the brochure Safety abroad.
  • UiO’s web pages on studies abroad also contain some useful information on travelling.


It is important that you complete UiO’s self-declaration form for studies abroad so that we can provide help if necessary when you are abroad.
