The students ombudsperson is an independent person who can give the students advice and assistance, and who can follow up matters that concern the students' rights and duties in the student life. More than 70% of all students in Norway today have access to student ombudsmen.
I am a sociologist, with a major (master) in sociology from the University of Bergen. In addition, I have teaching expertise through PPU, and have worked as a lecturer in legal studies at Stavanger Cathedral School. My background and experience have given me useful knowledge, competence and skills in meeting with you as a student and the issues you can face in your studentlife at the university. I know the university well and have been employed here since 2005. If you are a new student at UiS or have been a student here for several years, meeting with a large and complex educational institution such as UiS can be challenging and offer new and unfamiliar issues. You are most welcome to contact the students ombudsperson with small and large issues that appear in your student life. I will give advice and guidance to the best of my ability, no matter what the case is.
