The academic year 2020/2021 starts Monday 10 August. The digital ceremony will be streamed on www.uis.no and Facebook.
The new mayor of Stavanger, Kari Nessa Nordtun, will get the honor of opening the half-hour programme, hosted by two of our superb students of journalism, Anna SĂ¸rmarken Vestly and Anders Haualand. In addidion, UiS rector Klaus Mohn, president of the student organisation StOr, Philip Jamissen and president of the Fadder festival Una Ruzic will be joining the programme to talk more about what you can expect in the coming week and year as a student.
Song and dance
No ceremony without a bit of entertainment, of course: you can expect some fine tunes from the Norwegian artist Kapteinen, who was originally due to perform at the Fadder festival, which had to rearrange its programme this year due to the corona situation.
In addition there will be a short dance performance – tune in at noon August 12 to see how!
