Orientation Week

Bachelor programmes

On Monday 19 August, Orientation Week begins for new students in our bachelor programmes.

Welcome to Orientation Week 2024

Orientation Week is one of the annual highlights at BI, and with an academic and social programme, we will make sure that we get you off to a great start here at BI!

Social integration is a focus of ours, and together with Fadderullan, we will work on facilitating arenas where you can get to know your fellow students better.

Orientation Week begins Monday 12 August (for more info about International Student Orientation Day please read below). Classes begin Monday 19 August. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

The programme for Orientation Week will be released in early August.


In early August you will also be sent assorted information to help you prepare for your time at BI. Preparatory Courses will begin in early August and details can be found on the student portal.

International Student Orientation Day - 9 August

A separate International Student Orientation Day will take place before Orientation Week. International students will be provided with the necessary tools and information to facilitate a smooth transition into life as a student in Norway, including sessions on practical matters and cultural adaptation.
