Being a new international students can feel a little overwhelming, but HiOA has implemented several measures that will make the transition to your new student environment easier.
Buddy week is designed to you a flying start to your semester at HiOA. You will automatically be assigned a buddy group at the beginning of the semester. You will be placed in a group with around 20 new international students and 2-4 buddies. Your buddies are current HiOA students, who will tell you everything you need to know about being a new student.
During buddy week your buddies will give you a campus tour, take you to many different social activities and give you tips and advice about HiOA and Oslo.
