Semester or Year in Norway
ISEP and MAUI-Utrecht are total immersion programs. In most cases, ISEP and MAUI-Utrecht participants register as a regular student at the host institution, take the same courses and have the same assignments, and participate in the same activities as the local students at that institution. This means that a student applying for an ISEP or a MAUI-Utrecht site must be more proactive and prepared to handle being in a location where they may be the only KU student in the program.

You now have two options to explore this spectacular and fascinating country:
University of Nordland lies just north of the Arctic Circle on the rugged and beautiful Northwestern coast surrounded by breathtaking mountains and fjords. The Midnight Sun in the summer and the spectacular Aurora Borealis, or Northern lights, continually dazzle local residents and international students alike.
The University of Bergen is located in Bergen, which is located in the Hordaland county on the west coast of Norway. The population of Bergen is around 280,000 people, so it proves to be the second most-populated city in all of Norway (behind Oslo of course). Bergen is home to a World Hertiage Site: the remains of the Bryggen quays! Also, Bergen is seen as an international center for sea trades: aquaculture, shipping, subsea technology, and offshore petroleum practices. Lastly, Bergen is dubbed the city of the Seven Mountains.
Whether you are traveling to the rugged Northwest or the charming Southeast of Norway you are sure certain to have an extraordinary experience while studying abroad!
University of Bergen: All undergraduate disciplines are available for MAUI-Utrecht exchange students except for Medicine and Odontology.
