How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
There are international clubs and associations in Norway that allow you to network and keep in touch. Oslo is a multicultural region with a large international community. In the City of Oslo alone, more than 20 per cent of the population is of non-Norwegian origin, meaning either not born in Norway or neither of their parents was born in Norway.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
Joining local sports, theater, cultural clubs, etc., is recommended. Children’s activities also allow adults to socialize.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
There is a very big social scene throughout the city, especially at the bars and cafés. Other options include the various expat clubs.
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
- Norway International Network (NIN)
- Association of International Professional and Business Women (AIPBW)
- Petroleum Women’s Club (PWC), Oslo
- American Women’s Club
