Every year close to 1,000 new international students arrive in Bergen. Most arrive in the autumn, but about 250 arrive for the spring semester. Meet some of them in this video.
On 5 January 2012, around 200 new international students were gathered at Studentsenteret (the Student Centre) in the heart of Bergen to get information before starting their studies at the University of Bergen (UiB). People from all over the world have discovered the unique resources at this internationally recognised university with more than 160 different study programmes to choose from. Many of the newly arrived students are also drawn by the promise of nature and the fjords on the West coast of Norway.
