The University of Bergen (UiB) is an internationally recognised research university. Academic diversity and high quality are fundamental for us. UiB is the most cited university in Norway.
There are seven faculties at UiB and there are a total of 16.000 students at the university. Around 1,550 of these are international students. We employ 3,600 staff. PhD candidates are paid employees of staff, making the doctoral degree at UiB particularly attractive for rising talent. About one in three graduating doctors are from outside Norway.
The University of Bergen has most of its premises concentrated close to the city centre at Nygårdshøyden. The main events for the NUASkom 2017 conference will take place in the new University Aula at the University Museum and at Sydneshaugen skole (the Faculty of Humanities campus). Both locations are just a couple of minutes walk from the conference hotel and venue for the Get-together dinner at Scandic Bergen City and the city centre. Both Monday and Tuesday, we will head to The Student Centre for lunch, just across the street from the University Aula/University Museum.
