Study start January 2022

We are looking forward to welcoming new students in January 2022. However, due to the current situation with Covid-19, we ask you to kindly stay updated on the information given by the Norwegian government. 

For international students, it is important to keep the unpredictable situation in mind, when planning a stay, concerning accommodation and travel arrangements.

Covid-19 information for international incoming students

The official semester dates for Spring semester 2022 for international students are: January 5th - June 17th, 2022.
Most study programmes aim to have students physically on campus from Monday, January 10th. 

The exceptions are:
