Oslo, Norway

While in Oslo, I was able to consult with the study abroad office when I needed help. They were able to discuss banking, how to find things on campus, and how to sign up for classes. Every time I went in to ask questions, they were very polite and able to answer my questions. Additionally, they organized activities for orientation and throughout the year to give international students an opportunity to meet up.

On-Site Staff for Oslo, Norway

The Oslo program is administered in the US by the USAC Central Office. At the University of Oslo, the staff of the Student Information and Communications Office will answer questions about student housing and other practical matters, provide the mandatory orientation, assist with class registration, and arrange the special events program. USAC students also have the option to be paired with in a Norwegian Buddy Group to help orient them to the university and surrounding areas. The staff at the University of Oslo also do a wonderful job at keeping students from abroad informed about events on campus and in the community, allowing them to further immerse into Norwegian culture. Marius Thomassen, based in Oslo, will also serve as a resource to USAC students as the USAC Oslo Resident Director. Marius will answer questions and organize group events for USAC students, including USAC dinners and excursions.
