It is in the first semester that much of the basis for a happy and rewarding life as a student is added. It is during the first semester you will meet friends for life, it is during the first semester you create the foundation for an active student life and it is in the first semester you start to store the many good memories that you will keep with you the rest of life.

Look for 'First semester' ("FØRSTE SEMESTER") mark for initiatives and events that are tailored to you as a new student. Your first semester is as much about getting to know fellow students, and the town you live in, as it is about getting good grades.


  • We will help you become familiar with as many of your fellow students as possible from the first day onwards.
  • We will arrange “Vrimledager”, where we invite and mingle with associations, clubs and parties who can provide social and rewarding offers outside of your studies in Bodø.
  • We will work with the student representatives at Nord University so that we have the best possible understanding of events in your class.
  • We will arrange “crash courses” in food preparation, cleaning, student economy and insurance so that you are well prepared for your new life as a student.
  • We will help you arrange study groups to ensure that you do your best on your first exams.
  • We organise trips and excursions (such as Arctic Escape) at the start of each semester so that students can get to know each other and can see the district/county at its best.
  • We have hired a student host (studentverten) to act as a liaison between students and the university and Studentinord.


  • Works to ensure that you as a new student find yourself settling in well to student life

  • Works for you at the university so that new students know what the city of Bodø has to offer
