The Oslo program offers the opportunity to live in a city made for outdoor enthusiasts- surrounded by fjords and forests, with numerous sports at your fingertips in every season- while enrolled at the University of Oslo in a range of courses taught in English. You may stay for one semester or a full year and choose from courses in the areas of Scandinavian Studies, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Medicine, Medieval Studies, Middle East Studies, Nordic Languages, Peace and Conflict Studies, Gender Studies, Education, Law, and Graduate Studies.
Surrounded by hills and fjords, the University of Oslo is Norway's largest and oldest university and leading academic institution. International students are offered a "Special Events Program" each semester. The events provide cultural and social opportunities and will assist you in meeting local and other international students and in becoming integrated into the university community. Special events are either free or very reasonably priced and include a tour of Oslo, guided visits to art galleries and museums, film evenings, the very popular International Coffee Hour on Friday afternoons, a cross-country skiing course, and fall and spring weekend trips into the beautiful forests of Nordmarka, part of Oslo's extensive recreation area. International students can also take part in the many student clubs and societies open to all registered students at the University of Oslo. USAC students also have the option to be paired with Norwegian "buddies" to help orient them to the university and surrounding areas. The city has many cafes and bars where there is nightly entertainment as well as theaters and concert halls, and the countryside surrounding Oslo is spectacularly beautiful and offers opportunities for both downhill and cross country skiing as well as hiking, orienteering, and biking.
