The University of Oslo (Universitetet i Oslo or UiO) is a public university in Oslo, Norway. It was founded in 1811 as the Royal Frederick University after King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway. In 1939, it received its present name. Until 1946, it was known as “the University,” being the only university in the country. UiO is the oldest university and, at present, the second largest university in Norway in terms of size.
The university is known for its excellent faculties, which include Education, Dentistry, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Humanities, Medicine, Law, and Lutheran Theology (reflecting Norway’s state religion since 1536). Its first neoclassical campus was situated at the heart of Oslo, which is the present home of the Faculty of Law.
It is ranked as among the top universities in the Nordic countries and is rated to be among the best universities worldwide by major ranking groups. UiO has an estimated number of students ranging around 27,000, with approximately 6,000 academic and non-teaching staff.
The university offers an extensive range of undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses, including exchange programs and short/diploma courses.
For instance, the Faculty of Humanities offers bachelor programs in Culture, Religion, Asian Languages, Asian and African Studies, Media and Communication, and Musicology, master’s programs in European Languages, Literature, European and American Studies, and PhD in Humanities.
Exchange programs at UiO are offered through Erasmus+, Fulbright, Nordplus/Nordlys, and bilateral agreements. Students can choose from a long list of courses offered in English, Norwegian, or via online delivery (MOOC).
A number of UiO research groups are classified as Centres of Excellence for a ten-year period. Its research centers cover multiple subject areas, such as the humanities, social science, science, and health sciences. Some of these centers include the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, the Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming, the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics, and the Norwegian Centre for Mental Disorders Research.
The university’s Atrium is famous for being the venue for numerous Nobel Peace Prize awarding ceremonies (1947 to 1989); it was chosen to be the host again for 2020. In fact, it holds the distinction of being the only university in the world to participate in awarding a Nobel Prize. Moreover, UiO has also produced five Nobel laureates.
Finally, the University of Oslo, being a public Norwegian institution of higher education, does not collect tuition fees from its students, except for a few miscellaneous fees, which are donated to support student welfare organizations.
