In Norway there is no guarantee of good weather any time of the year.

In September, the average temperature is around 14 degrees, so it is advisable to bring a warm (rain)coat. An umbrella would be advisable as well.
Norway is a high-cost country, and visitors from abroad find drinks and food expensive.

Accommodation costs are comparable to what you find in other European cities.
The lunch boxes are delivered by the The Foundation for Student Life in Oslo. They contain salads with pasta or couscous, bread and juice. A vegetarian variant is available. Lunches must be prepaid in connection with registration.
