Meet our students

And another thing: While you are walking from hall to hall at the ONS venue, you might run into our floor-walking students. You can recognize them by their characteristic blue "Sound of Science" coats.

The students are there to promote the university, so do not hesitate to engage them in conversation! If needed, they will guide you to our stand, where researchers will be ready to answer all your questions. 

You can also find students from UiS at ONS Young, who will participate in many different activities. 

Are you interested in cooperating with our students? Post thesis ideas or vacancies on our contact portal (site in Norwegian). Or send an e-mail to
