USN is one of Norway’s largest universities
Andreas Zedrosser, ” USN is a small University but at the same time, it’s a big university in a sense that there is a lot of students, you can do lots of things, you can study in different directions, but at the same time it’s small in the sense that it’s very personal, you get to know people, you meet people, it’s easy to get in contact with teachers and students. So, it’s a small and big university at the same time.
Studying at USN offers you a unique experience and gives you skills and knowledge that will make a difference for your future.
The University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) is one of Norway’s largest universities.
