The University of Oslo


The University of Oslo is a renowned institution with strong
academic traditions which offers high quality education and
research. As a student you will have access to all of this in
the beautiful city of Oslo.

A leading European university


The University of Oslo (UiO) was
founded in 1811, and is Norways oldest, premier, and largest institution of
higher education. UiO has contribu
ted substantially to research, innovation, and education in and outside of
Norway.
The University of Oslo offers degree
programmes within eight faculties:
Theology, Law, Medicine, Humanities,
Mathematics and Natural Sciences,
Dentistry, Social Sciences, and Education. We offer more than 800 courses taught in English at all levels, and
40 Masters degree programmes are
taught in English.
Students at the University of Oslo have
access to excellent lecture and university library facilities; the the awardwinning library building has become a
popular meeting place. Students at UiO
live and learn in a positive and inclusive learning environment.

International university
Over 10 % of the student population at
the University of Oslo has an international background. Oslo is an international capital with people and culture
from all over the world.

A research university
The University of Oslo is Norways
largest research institution. Basic research constitutes the cornerstone of
the Universitys ongoing development
as a research university of high international standing. We believe that excellence in research is a prerequisite
for quality in university education, and
that it is the key to the research communitys ability to provide relevant
responses to current challenges, to
contribute to innovation, and to engage
in public and international issues.
The University of Oslo coordinates eight
Centres of Excellence (SFF), a Centre
for Research-based Innovation, seven
Marie Curie Training Sites, three of Norways foremost museums as well as
a decentralised centre with nodes in
Troms and Oslo. Our research groups
have been given the SFF-title for a period of ten years, and UiOs first three
SFFs were established in 2003.

Nobel Prize laureates


Four researchers at the University of
Oslo has been rewarded with Nobel
prizes for their research, more than all
the other Norwegian universities.
Ragnar Frisch (1895-1973) was
awarded the very first Nobel Prize
in Economics in 1969.
Odd Hassel (1897-1981) was awarded
the 1969 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Ivar Giver (1929- ) received the
Nobel Prize in Physics in 1973.

Studying in Oslo

05

The capital of Norway is welcoming, vibrant, and cosmopolitan.


Oslo offers a varied cultural life and easy access to outdoor
experiences on the coast, in the forests, and in the mountains.

UiO in Oslo
The University of Oslos original campus is located in the city centre, adjacent to the Royal Palace and the Parliament. The main campus of Blindern,
just minutes by subway, tram, or bicycle from the heart of Oslo, offers proximity to the forests and hills surrounding the city and affords wonderful
views of the Oslo Fjord. As most Norwegians speak English, it is easy to find
ones way around.
The city of everything
Oslo is smaller than most capitals, but
offers all the cultural activities one expects to find in a capital as well as the
beautiful nature surrounding the city
and the University. The Norwegian
capital is home to almost 600 000 inhabitants, and over 10 % of the entire
population of Norway. Among Oslos
60 000 students, almost 75 % come
from outside Oslo.
Fjord city
The city of Oslo lies at the end of the
100 km Oslo Fjord and is surrounded by sea, forests, and hills. You can
reach many of the 40 islands in the
Oslo Fjord by boat from downtown
Oslo. The climate in Oslo is milder than
the latitude suggests, and in the summertime the temperature normally

exceeds 20C. Yet, the winters are cold


enough to make Oslo a popular venue
for skiing.

Green and fresh


Oslos many parks cover over 8 km2
of the city. Over 50 % of the city area
of Oslo is covered by forest and parks,
and there are hundreds of lakes within
the city limits.

01 The city of Oslo lies at the end of the 100

forests and hills.

With public transport, you can quickly and easily reach Oslomarka, the forested and hilly areas surrounding Oslo.
Here you can go hiking, skiing, kajakking, camping, swimming, and explore the forests surrounding the city
by bike.

02 The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet.


Oslo Opera House is a landmark at the
top of the Oslo Fjord. The spectacular
building is designed by the Norwegian
architectural firm Snhetta.
03 Oslomarka. Vast forested hills surrounding Oslo. Ideal for outdoor activity after a
short ride on public transport.

Experience Norway from Oslo


In Oslo you can combine high-quality
education with unforgettable outdoor
experiences, both winter and summer.
Norway is known for its outstanding
nature, and all of this is easily accessible from Oslo.

04 Ski enthusiast? In Oslomarka you can


indulge in more than 350 kilometers of
prepared trails.
05 Oslo lies in the south-eastern part of
Norway, and is a perfect venue for
discovering the rest of the country.

You can travel to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern lights), experience the
midnight sun, and discover the beautiful fjords and mountains all over the
country. Students in Norway love the
fresh air, quiet atmosphere, clean water and vast areas of space and nature.

General facilities
The University of Oslos lecture rooms,
laboratories, and computer labs are
well-equipped and maintained, and the
study facilities include state-of-the-art
libraries and a wireless network zone
for portable computer users. International students often comment positively on the availability and approachability of teachers.
Start with friendships
At the beginning of each semester you
are introduced to a Buddy a student
who has taken responsibility for introducing the University of Oslo and the
city to new students. When joining a
Buddy group, you quickly get to know
new students during the first week of
your stay.
Every semester, the University of Oslo
arranges a special events programme
for international students, such as museum tours, hiking trips, ski courses,
film evenings, and the weekly International Coffee Hour. The International Coffee Hour is a popular meeting
place for international and Norwegian
students and is held every Friday from
16.00 to 18.00 at the student house
Chateau Neuf.

not assist students financially. Cost
of living grants are only awarded to
international students accepted for
