Student Comments
" To conclude my experience as an exchange student at the University of Bergen was incredible and cannot possibly be summed up in words! For law students an exchange to Bergen is hard to beat considering you only need to take 3 subjects to receive credit for 5 subjectsand the subjects are both interesting and engaging. This coupled with amazing social experiences and travel opportunities and an exchange at the Universityof Bergen in Norway is an experience I would have no hesitations in recommending to any student." 2010
