Study Bergen arranges a number of subsidized events for students throughout the year. 

The amount we subsidize varies from event to event, but it can be up to 250 NOK per participant. Although the events are subsidized, there is usually also a cost for participants (ranging from NOK 50-350 depending on the event).  

 

Our events are for students registered at the following institutions:

  • University of Bergen (UiB)
  • Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL)
  • Norwegian School of Economics (NHH)
  • NLA University College (NLA)
  • VID specialized university (VID)

 

On some events we offer differentiated ticket prices for students attending other institutions and friends/family of participants. 

 

FAQ

How do I register?
- We promote our events on our homepages and as events on our Facebook pages. Registration varies depending if it is a free event or if there is a participant cost.

 -On both free events and payment events, registration must be done on our homepages. (The link to the page will always be part of the event). 


How do I pay?

Payment is done by credit card via our registration page. If you for some reason cannot pay by creditcard or experience issues with the payment system, please contact us. We will try to sort out the issues. 

Why don't you offer refunds?

We do not offer refund for the following reasons:

  • It leads to ticket touting
  • It significantly increases the administrative costs of hosting the event
  • It can lead to the participant register being less certain, which is problematic in a health and safety perspective.
  • It increases queuing time at the event
We understand that it can be frustrating that we do not accept changes. But since we subsidize the cost of every ticket (often up to 50% of the actual price), we hope participants appreciate that we cannot offer the same level of service as organisations and companies whose goal is to make a profit on their events.

Can I sell my ticket to another person?

You can transfer your ticket to another person until a certain date before the event. The service costs 45 NOK. If the name change involves a change to a higher price category, the difference in ticket category must also be paid. No refund will be given if the name change is to a lower price category. 

Will you be taking pictures? 

Yes. We always want to document our events. The pictures will be used on Facebook in connection with the event, marketing material for Study Bergen or on our web pages. If you do not want your picture to be published, please let us know before the event. 

Liability

Please note that neither Study Bergen nor your host institution are liable should you injure yourself, lose or have possessions stolen from you on any of the events. We recommend that you have a valid insurance, in case of such occurrences.
