This Norwegian School Figured Out A Way For Everyone In Oslo To Know Your Name Before You Even Arrive

This is real, and it is happening.

If you've ever moved to a new country, whether it's for school or work, you know it can be a challenge. You might be in this new place all alone, not know anyone, and have to make friends from scratch — a truly terrifying endeavor. 

But if you choose to study abroad in Oslo, the capital of Norway, BI Norwegian Business School wants to make things a little easier for you. 


"What if the entire country knew your name before you arrive?" begins a video by BI.

Don't think this is possible? Well it can be if you are an international student applying to BI's program, and enter BI's A Flying Start competition. 

The winner will be pre-introduced to everyone in Oslo this fall — LITERALLY everyone.

We are talking billboards all over Oslo with the lucky one's name on them...

...magazine spreads...

... and even free beverages at student parties if the person's name is pronounced correctly.

Watch the entire video below to learn how you can be the most famous student in Oslo this coming fall.
