We're getting some questions from students that are either appointed- or want to drive at field excursions and have been advised to talk with the student administration getting a contract. 

Please notice that the student administration can't help you with this.

The course/fieldcourse- responsible need to take contact with Ann-Christin Jäger (a.c.jager@mn.uio.no) at economy at the Department of Geosciences well before departure and have a contract made for the students this applies to. You can't drive the UiO-cars without a valid contract and driver licence that is valid in Norway.

Ann-Christin is currently away from office and will be back from Thursday 14 June.
