Semester start Autumn 2021

We are looking forward to welcoming new students in August 2021. However, due to the current situation with covid-19, we ask you to kindly stay updated on the information given on this site. Especially if you are travelling to Norway from abroad. 

USN is currently planning for on-campus teaching from august 2021 onwards. Due to the current travel restrictions to Norway, the situation is still unpredictable. Borders might still be closed, or only partly open from August 1st. USN is closely monitoring the situation and any changes to plans will be published well in advance.

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.

Police registration: 

We currently have no information on this subject. Please stay patient and we will inform you as soon as anything is arranged with the police.  

Semester start: 

The official semester dates for Autumn semester 2021 are:
August 16th - December 20th , 2021

  • Most study programmes aim to have students physically on campus from Monday, August 16th *This means you have to plan your 10 days quarantine prior to this, so that the quarantine will be completed at least by this date.

All our programmes for exchange and degree students are currently planning to run as normal, however USN is monitoring the situation and this might be subject to change.
We will provide more detailed information about arrival throughout the upcoming months. Students will also be notified directly about significant changes.
