Orientation week activities
Erasmus Student Network (ESN)
is a voluntary non-profit student organisation for the international students at the University of Agder.
We arrange trips, parties and other social gatherings during the semester. During orientation week, we offer events so that you get to know each other, the campus and the city.
When you're accepted at UiA, you will be put in a "Buddy group" consisting of other international students, as well as both Norwegian and international buddies. The buddies will be there to help you out during your stay in Norway.
Check out our page on Facebook: ESN Agder or contact us by e-mail if you have any questions.
Here some events during orientation week:
We welcome you to the University of Agder with a nice lunch where you can meet the other international students and your Buddies.
And again: Free food in community!
Have fun at the welcome party! :)
Opening ceremony (August)
The opening ceremony takes place in the week after your arrival. You can find many stands there where companies and all student organisations are represented.
In the evening there are concerts with some well-known regional artists and music students from UiA.
City Tour with Buddy Groups
With your buddy groups you can easily get to know the cities of Kristiansand and Grimstad.
Barbecue at "Jegersberg" (August)
"Jegersberg" is pretty close to the university and a nice area to hike and meet for barbecuing.
