As a new degree seeking student at the University of Agder in August, you will become part of a “fadder" group (buddy group). The assignment of fadder and faddergruppe takes place during the roll calls/information meetings that are held for each study programme on the first day of semester start. As a result, you do not have to submit a request about wanting a fadder.
As an exchange student, you also have the opportunity to participate in a "fadder" group during the two first weeks of the semester. Here you will get a good opportunity to get to know Norwegian students who are on the same or similar study programme as yourself.
Registration for this takes place digitally at Orientation day. NB! You sign up with your ESN buddy.
Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is a student organisation for supporting and developing student exchange. ESN's Buddy system welcomes both exchange and degree seeking students during semester start. ESN also organises events throughout the academic year.
