University of Stavanger

The University of Stavanger has an innovative and international profile and constitutes a driving force in the development of knowledge and change processes in society. Our societal mission is to challenge the well-known and explore the unknown.

With its strategical placement in the heart of the oil capital, Stavanger is not only a city to study and have fun. Here you are also close to both local and international companies engaged in a broad range of business.

The reason I picked UiS was because of the courses they offered. I wanted to broaden out, focussing on the environmental aspect. UiS is known for its many petroleum related studies and thus also has a lot of courses surrounding environmental risks.
