The University of Stavanger, Norway, has about 8500 students and 1200 administration, faculty and service staff. The academic activity is organized in 3 faculties, the Museum of Archaeology and also includes two national centres of expertise. Many of the externally funded research activities are made in collaboration with our research institute, International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS). Situated in the most attractive region in the country, the University can offer a multitude of cultural- and leisure activities. Considering its 300 000 inhabitants, the region can also offer good housing opportunities and a dynamic labour market. The University of Stavanger was officially opened by H.M. King Harald V on the 17. January 2005. However, the academic roots of the University go further into the past. One of the subject fields dates back to 1912, while the width of our academic and research facilities progressed from 1970s to this day.
