“My best advice: come to Ås!”

“The student environment at NMBU is very good and I had five absolutely fantastic years at Ås. I have made friends for life and built a good professional network with both professors and fellow students. These are friendships that I will take with me further into life,” says Marius Sauders. He now works as a national park manager in Nordland.

Why are students so satisfied with NMBU?

“Some students perhaps land on the more general universities a little randomly, because they don’t quite know what they want to do. NMBU has a clear profile, and we therefore see that many students have thought carefully about their choice before arriving here,” says Vegard Nilsen.
