Exchange students

You will get information from International House, there is a specific time you need to be at Dragvoll, for those of you attending classes related to humaniora and political science.

What is a “Linjeforening”? “Linjeforening” is a student organization that is socially responsible for each and every student in their studies. For example: “De Folkevalgte”, is the student organization for the students attending political science classes. All of the student organizations are created and run by students. And they all do it voluntarily!

You will be able to choose yourself which “Linjeforening” you wish to join. They have a fully scheduled program during the whole socialization period/orientation week, also called “Fadderuka” in Norwegian. 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!
