The sessions will be streamed live on the Internet, but it will also be possible to watch them later at your convenience.

More information about the information meetings will be published on the New international student's webpage as soon as it is available.

We invite you to a digital welcome meeting for the MSc in Neuroscience on 17 August at 10am (Norwegian time zone). A link to join the meeting will be provided later.

The welcome meeting will last for approximately two hours. You will meet your study programme leader, the student advisor and your fellow students, and practical information about the courses will be given.
