  • Studenter
    Håkon Sparre

New international students at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences are invited to welcome/introduction meetings and events their first couple of days on Campus.


The primary goal of these meetings and events is to assist new students getting ready for their studies at NMBU and introduce them to the student life.

The program of the welcome/introduction meetings and events varies, depending on which semester we are in. When the updated program is ready, it will be posted on this page.
