Start of studies for International Master Students

We would like to welcome you as a new student at our international master programmes at HVL! We are preparing for you to have a good academic start on your programme.

Semester registration

We ask you to register which course you are going to take this first semester, so that we can give you a timetable and access to the right courses in the learning platform Canvas. We call this semester registration. Once you have done this, you will have access to Canvas, email and other tools you need.

You will receive the information you need to register.

Students that have a Norwegian personal number and a Norwegian phone number will receive a SMS with the PIN code you need to register.

Students that does not have a Norwegian personal number and/or a Norwegian phone number will receive an email with your HVL personal number, and a separate email with the PIN code. You are to use both the HVL personal number and the pin code to register for the semester. You can not register before you have received the two emails from us.

The deadline to register for the semester and pay the semester fee is 1 September for the autumn semester and 1 February for the spring semester, but you can do it as soon as you have received the two emails from us.

Get to know Canvas

Canvas is our learning platform. Here you will find all the information you need about the subject you are going to take, teaching and contact with lecturers.

Some of the content in Canvas is open to everyone, but much of what is most relevant to you must log in to see.

You must have registered for the semester and have created a user account to log in.
