Christina saw the Norwegian comedy group, Ylvis on Finnish TV. " The language sounded fun, so wanted to learn more", she says.

"I went to see the show in Oslo, later I decided to study here. Student life in Norway is quite exciting." 

Here you can read more about her student experience:

What was your idea of Norway before you arrived?

I expected it to be quite similar to Finland, though I had heard that everything is expensive in Norway, especially food. I also expected that the people would be quite friendly.

In your opinion, what is the most important academic outcome as an international student in Norway?

I really enjoyed my information theory course. The lectures were great with many good guest lecturers. The course was quite difficult with a lot of work, but for me it was rewarding, and I felt that what I learned was useful for my studies.

What would you highlight from your stay in Norway?

I think it is about getting to know people from other countries. It is also about becoming more open-minded and attending more diverse activities.

Do you have an advice to other students who want to go to Norway?

There are a lot of activities, and I would recommend them to attend as many as possible. Student life in Norway is quite exciting.

What are you doing now?

Right now, I'm doing an internship as part of my studies. When I go back to Finland, I will start to write my thesis. After that, I hope to come back to Norway.
