For students and employees

The University of Oslo will do everything in our power to take care of our Ukrainian students, employees and others affected by this tragedy.

Students

Financial support

The Norwegian Government wants to aid Ukrainian students in a difficult situation by granting financial support to cover subsistence costs. A grant scheme has been established for spring 2022 and will be continued for the academic year 2022/2023

Course in Ukrainian language and culture

In the autumn of 2022, UiO will offer a course in Ukrainian language and culture (Norwegian).

Residency

The Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI) has decided that Ukrainian citizens who are in Norway on permits or visa-free visits that expire can continue to be here until further notice.

If you are continuing your studies next semester, you should apply for a renewal of your residence permit. Please refer to our web page for further information.

If you have questions regarding renewal of permits or other questions related to you residency in Norway, please contact Knutepunktet.

If you need someone to talk to:

Travel

Employees must use UiO's travel portal when booking travels, and it is recommended to register travel information with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

Advice for managers

Management might be contacted by employees who are affected by the situation. People will experience the situation differently, and we recommend paying extra attention to international employees. Keep in mind that their network in Norway might be smaller, and they may need additional support. Managers are recommended to contact their local HR/personnel adviser for assistance with individual follow-ups. 

Managers also have the option to contact the Occupational Health Service Unit for assistance and advice in following up on employees.

Support for the reception of affected researchers

The University of Oslo Scholars at Risk-committee (SAR) will redispose 1,8 MNOK in SAR funds for short-term support for Ukrainian researchers.
