New in Oslo brochure

An introduction to some of the things you need to know when you are new in Oslo: work, health, education and so on.
Read the brochure here.

Your First Steps

Work in Oslo

Even though the job market is pretty good compared to other places in Europe, the kind of jobs you are likely to apply for are competitive. Start with making a good CV and Cover Letter. We can help you with that at UngInfo. Download our free CV template.

Accomodation in Oslo

Start with joining the Facebook group «Rooms/apartments for rent in Oslo».  The most used sites in Norway are finn.no and hybel.no, unfortunately they are both in Norwegian, so it is recommended to use Google Translate or other translation tools if your Norwegian is not so good.

Education in Oslo

After completing ten years of mandatory primary and lower secondary school, students continue with three to four years of upper secondary education. In Norwegian, this education is called «videregående». The structure of Norwegian higher education is pretty much similar to what you find in other European countries.

Health in Oslo

Where do I find a doctor? What does medical care cost is Norway? What about health insurance? It can be confusion to find your way in the Norwegian healthcare system, but we have explained it all the the New in Oslo brochure.

Good to know about Oslo

In order to receive your salary, you need a Norwegian bank account. Normally, you need a D-number or personal ID-number before you set up an account. They can help you with this at The Centre for Foreign Workers (SUA).

Join the «New to Oslo» group in Facebook, here you can talk to other people in the same situation as you.
