During the Introduction Week, international students recieve assistance with residence permit, police registrations, course registrations, and much more. Each August, NMBU welcomes approximately 200 international degree-seeking students and exchange students. The introduction week's primary goal is to assist these students to living in Norway and get ready to start studies at NMBU.
The buddy week is for all new students, both Norwegian and international students, and the primary goal is to become acquainted with students in the same academic area. Each student is assigned to a buddy group by department, and each department may have separate buddy activities, in addition to those organized for all new students on campus. The buddy week actually lasts through the whole month of August.
