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 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 Tuesday 13 August. Classes begin Monday 19 August. We look forward to welcoming you to campus!

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


Preparatory courses will begin in early August. Details will be available on itslearning from late July.

International Student Orientation Day - 9 August

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

Our master students in Bergen, and others who cannot be present, can follow the sessions on Friday online. Please note that digital attendance through stream does not require registration.
