Hi all,

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

P.S : The thread New members of the Norway forum, introduce yourself here – 1st quarter of 2015 continues below!

Hello, my name is Loveday. I live in Nigeria. I would like to do my MSc in Norway. I need first hand info from Nigerian students in Norway on how they managed to pull it off, the cost and requirements.

Hello! I'll be moving my family from the U.S. this summer to live near Oslo. We expect to be there for three years. While many elements of our move are covered by my employer, we have many unanswered questions. If anyone's available to answer questions about life in Norway, please let me know!

:)  Hi i a real Canadian !  Just need a visa for more than 90 days!
I m curently seecking to understand the Norwegian law! 
i have been going to Norway Bærum for 2 years Now Took some private Norskurs beginner twice,    Yes! i ll get there... My first language is Franch from Quebec!  Litt complicated that Norsk... But love it
So how could it be possible after 50 to just go & learn more about Norway! 90 days on 180 not so good for Norskurs... I do have a Norwegian sponcer i do stay with him.  I do not want to work
So any good idea My new friends?

Hallo! My name is Tj and I´m 26 years old. I came to Norway over a month ago with a student visa for skilled worker. I am living with my aunt in Telemark. When I came, I didn´t know that there were already a lot of changes in the system and I just found out during my appointment in the politi that my visa is not renewable and thus shall expire one year exactly.

I waited over a year before I got this visa coz I was caught up with the changes in the system and that they had permanently stopped accepting students visas for skilled workers. Good thing I was able to catch up though. Now the problem is that my norskurs will start not till August. My time is ticking and I don´t want to waste away my chances here. I´m struggling to get a job around and stressed about the fact that I can only be here for a year. :(

I hope I can stay here longer, or for good so to speak. But I don´t really know how. Anyway, I hope I can get some insights about these things here.  :)

Hi! I'm new here in Norway. I just came in two weeks ago as a tourist. I'm a bit struggling with the language and eager to learn more of it so I can converse with the waiter or the cashier or anyone living here in Norway. By the way, I'm in Oslo. I would just like to meet some people here and would like to ask some help regarding with the language. The city is so beautiful and the people seem so lively but I still feel lonely because I don't have friends.

Hi , you can take out Norwegian residency if  you wish to stay, but you will need a  job first  and will have to speak  Norwegian. Only people coming here that are over  55  do not need to speak the lanquage. If you do not have a job I think you will have to provide proof that you are able to support yourself as the state will not do that

one of the big challenges moving to Norway as a nurse or other healthcare professional is getting your credentials accepted here. For more information I recommend reading this website:


G'day - am from India currently living in NZ. Planning to migrate to Oslo in July 2015. I've read in a few posts that during July most of the shops and offices are closed - Could you please advise if I'd be able to contact rental agents and secure a house for rent? How long does the provisioning of utilities take (internet, phone, TV,...etc)?

Hi jonz and welcome to > you should please avoid duplicate posting. You already got answers on your other similar thread here.

My name is Juuli. I recently moved to Sandnes (just outside Stavanger) with my boyfriend. We both come from Finland. I will start exchange studies in the University of Stavanger in August, he works in the building industry.

On my free time I like to watch movies and series, read, go jogging and hiking, cook and so on. I of course love spending a lot of time with my boyfriend but I would also like to meet other people here. I wish to meet people to hang out with. I love spending time outside, just walking around or sitting in cafes etc. Also, for instance joining some team sport would be great!

I speak quite okay Swedish so I understand Norwegian in some scale and practicing it wouldn't hurt! Anyhow, I'm comfortable speaking English. :)

Hope you're having a nice day!

hello how are you thank you so mach Im her in bergen centir my phon is ****

My family and I moved to Bergen 2yrs ago from Australia when my partner got a contract job that ends in a few years. I'm Sri Lankan Australian and my partner's Norwegian. We moved to be closer to this side of our family for a little while, and to see whether we like life in Norway enough to make the move permanent. We've lived with a leg in each country over the last decade, travelling back and forth for work and holidays.

We speak English to each other mostly when we're at home, Norwegian in public if it's easier than switching, and to our 2 young kids generally our respective mother tongues. Our 3yo is bilingual, the 1yo we're not sure about since he hasn't said much intelligible yet. I'm fairly fluent in Norwegian but still often feel unconfident. Having small kids here helps (forces) to engage with institutions and people. Now, the youngest is beginning barnehage in a few months and it's time for me to get back to work.

It'd be great to hear from you if you're also a native English-speaking parent of small kids looking for playdates, or if you have any tips for an ex-pat legal academic/lecturer/researcher/editor/journalist/ human rights activist/teacher about securing employment vaguely in my field here in Bergen.

Hi, I am Solomon. I've started living in Norway since 6 months ago and in Bergen for a month. Would be glad if I could get information about jobs in Bergen particularly for some one with a media and NGO communication work background .

Hello, I'm Charles from Abuja. I plan to move to Norway next year for a master's degree. Please, does anyone know about the fisheries industry in Norway? Can I get a job in that industry?
