What is a “Linjeforening”? “Linjeforening” is a student organization that is social responsible for each and every student at their studies. For example: “De Folkevalgte”, hvis is the student organization for the students attending political science classes. All of the student organizations are made and runned by students. And they all do it for free! The leader of Fadderutvalget will explain more detailed about why you need to know all this.
You will be able to choose by yourself which “Linjeforening” you wish to join. They have a fully scheduled program during the whole socialization period, also called “Fadderuka”. If you want to meet Norwegian students, this is the best place to start!
Enjoy your stay in Norway! I’m sure you’ll have a great time!
