The International Summer School (ISS) is part of University of Oslo's (UiO) contingency plans for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) based on the advisories from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Oslo Municipality. We are continuously monitoring the situation, and actively taking appropriate steps to ensure the safety of our students and staff members.

Digital semester start

The Corona virus situation has developed in such a way that it is important to implement preventive measures. For the spring semester, the start of the courses in January will be digital. Depending on how the situation evolves, there might be a possibility of changing to on-campus classes later in the semester.
