Overview

 

Location: Oslo, Norway


Oslo
 

Description

Oslo is located in southeastern Norway at the head of the Oslo Fjord.  With a population of 1.4 million it is the country's largest city and its cultural, scientific, economic and governmental center. A dynamic cosmopolitan city renowned for its many parks and green areas, Oslo is filled with opportunities to enjoy art, culture, food, and fun. 

Oslo Metropolitan University is Norway's largest state university college. It has two campuses in the metropolitan area of Oslo and Akershus, one in central Oslo and one in the suburb of Kjeller. This is the fastest expanding region in Norway in terms of population growth and economic activity. Not far from the vibrant city center you have beautiful nature that is eager to be explored. Oslo is well connected with the rest of Europe with two international airports in the vicinity, and with direct ferries to Germany and Denmark. Its 500,000 inhabitants make it the ideal size to enjoy and study at, whilst also having all the benefits of a national capital.

We have a week-long "buddy week" where students are divided into groups led by local students or previous international students. The week starts with an introduction day lunch and a "free flea market", and finishes in a campus party organised by the student parliament.
