International relations

An international university in a strong region

The University of Stavanger welcomes a growing number of international students and staff to our region each year, and hosts numerous projects, events and other cooperation activities every year.

Around 18% of Stavanger inhabitants have a foreign background, situating the UiS in a strongly internationalized region. The UiS admits around 400 international students pr year, and our institutional strategy sets the target for more growth in the coming years.

All levels of the university work towards a higher degree of internationalization, which is part of our strategy for quality development in studies and research, as well as our dialogue with external partners. The International Office is a main point of contact for partners and prospective students.
