A message to our exchange students

Følgende melding er sendt fra rektor til utvekslingsstudenter ved HiØ

Dear exchange students.

The last few days have affected us all, students and staff. For those who have been, or still are with us as an exchange student, the situation may have been extra special. Østfold University College has now asked all exchange students to return home. We have done this because we do not know how long this situation will last, and how the opportunities for travel will develop in the future. On behalf of the college’s management, I would like to express to each and every one of you that I am sorry that your stay had to end like this. I wish each end everyone of you the best of luck with your remaining studies and all the best, both for yourself and your family. If you now choose to go home, you should know that you are always welcome back to us. If you, on the other hand, choose to stay with us, it is important that you keep in contact with the international office, both related to practical issues, but also to let us know that you are doing well.

«We Shall Overcome»

I wish you all the best.

Best wishes


Lars-Petter Jelsness-Jørgensen
