Orientation Day

The orientation day takes place at the beginning of each semester.  During this day we make sure that you get all the necessary information about being a student at HVL.

Due to the pandemic situation and quarantine rules for incoming students for the spring semester of 2021, the orientation day will be an online event at Zoom 7. January 2021 14.00. When the situation allows it there will be a physical campus tour arranged by the student assistant at each campus. 

The orientation day will provide you with all the information you need for a semester in Norway. It is an opportunity to get practical support, ask questions, see other exchange students and meet the student assistants from each campus.
