| AboutThe UND/University of Oslo exchange program is one of the longest maintained agreements established first between the respective Law Schools and then broadened to include most areas of study at the institution. Since 2008 the primary movement of students has been those interested in studying Norwegian language and culture during the semester or International Summer School program.
The University of Oslo is located in the capital city of Norway. With a population of approximately a half a million people, Oslo is also Norway’s largest city. Situated between the Oslo fjord on the west and the hills and woodland to the east, the city offers visitors the beauty of mountains and sea as well as boasting a truly incredible number of outdoor recreation options that are only minutes away from downtown. Although Oslo has great public transportation, it is a city that is easily explored on foot. From Karl Johan’s Gate in the heart of Oslo to the Holmenkollen Ski Jump in the surrounding hills, there is a lot to see and do in this European capital. Additionally, regular train service to the rest of Scandinavia and ferry service to continental Europe also provides students with an array of travel opportunities.
The University of Oslo is the oldest and largest university in Oslo with faculties of Medicine, Dentistry, Law, Theology, Humanities, Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and Education Sciences. Known for the high quality of its research, it is proud to have had Nobel Prize winners in economics, chemistry, and physics. While most programs are offered in Norwegian there are more than 800 courses offered in English at the graduate and undergraduate level.
Student housing in Oslo is provided by the Student Union of Oslo, and students will work directly with SiO to make housing arrangements after they have been accepted by UiO.
I had an amazing experience abroad. My floor mates and I bonded within in the first week. We had weekly floor dinners to catch up and to talk about our plans for the upcoming week. I lived in a student village so socializing with other students was super convenient. Traveling out of Norway to other countries was fairly inexpensive, and made for easy planning for trips. I also volunteered at a student radio station while abroad and met many locals and other exchange students. I would recommend study abroad to any and every student considering it.
