Checklist for new students


Here is what you need to prepare before your departure to Norway.

1. Admission: Receive your admission from USN. If you are a student from outside the EU/EEA area, you will need an official letter stating your admission at USN, to provide for your visa application.

2. Accept your offer

Exchange students: by returning the e-mail to USN/or by confirming your status in Studentweb, stating that you will be accepting your offer and studying in Norway the upcoming semester.

Degree students: as described in your admission letter

3. Apply for housing – housing is guaranteed and pre-booked for all incoming international students (please note that campus Kongsberg is currently excepted from this guarantee, due to the lack of, and thus development of new, student housing until autumn 2019). 

Please note: If you fail to apply before the deadline (June 1st and December 1st) – your pre-booking might be cancelled and you might have to arrange private accommodation.

4. Prepare for departure:

5. Arrival: Make sure that you are arriving in the opening hours of the housing office to pick up your key – or check with SSN if they can arrange with the housing host to pick up your key.

6. Orientation day: Attend the orientation day!

7. Study: Then your studies at USN can begin!
