Ryan air flies from Haugesund, only a bustrip away, visit London! And try the ship to Denmark. Also, Bergen, Kristiansand and Oslo are must sees if you have time. Be open and just jump in, everyone is there to meet new and exciting cultures. Don't be afraid to ask and most importantly don't be afraid to make contact with the locals. It can be very difficult to do, because most international students rarely have opportunities for it, but just be brave and jump in!

Personal comments
It is no problem getting housing when you are an international exchange student and the level of housing is as it should be, but one would hope they could push it from mediocre to just above.

Personal spending habits
Food and other everyday comodities were usually cheeper than at home, where as luxury items (alcohol, tobacco, travel etc.) were more expensive. Student housing was cheeper than my usual rent and I rarley used the phone, which is why I spent less money on these.

Course recommendations
to have a wider choice of study programs I would recommend the applicants to take a one year language course on Norwegian Language and Culture. The programs/courses available in English are increasing,still there are just few Masters and Bachelors.

The academic life is restricted to ones own budget...one as a student will have to better decide on how the budget shall be distributed.Library is a good resource to improve your daily academic life. All books recommended by teachers are available at the library, just use it and your academic life will get 10 times cheaper and more social :)

I wish I had known...
nothing really, though I came to visit the country before I decided to come to Norway. That would be something I would recommend...come to visit, talk with the local students from your country, contact with the local international student union or the international department, they will help you to make a wise decision.
