International Student Blog

“Ha det blog” farewell blog

I have gotten some recent news – I was offered a stipend in order to become a research fellow/PhD candidate at UiB. I am absolutely thrilled and I look forward to the project very much. Sadly, it also means I must say “ha det, blog” (thanks to my friend Lynn for that perfect title!)  or “goodbye, blog”, which I am decidedly less thrilled about. For my last post, I will try to compile for you the ultimate international blog list – an index covering the breadth of subjects I’ve tackled with links to the posts. I am hoping this will allow you to search for nearly anything your heart might desire – related to student life in Bergen. I even updated some links for you within the posts, but I couldn’t get to all of them so consider dead links an opportunity for a google adventure 😉

Considering studying in Bergen?

Get an idea of what some of the faculties are like at UiB:

Meet some students

I know when I was thinking about coming to UiB I really wanted to talk to someone who was already attending. Well, here’s the next best thing:

I am so grateful for the three+ years I have gotten to write this blog. This has been an amazing experience, and I will dearly miss it! I won’t be monitoring comments anymore, but I wish everyone the absolute best with their study abroad experience in Bergen!

Thanks for reading, and all the best,
