41% of Norwegian students have few or no friends at their place of study, a new survey shows. 

“We cannot live with over 40% of students feeling this way. We must work from all sides with measures that can contribute to the feeling of belonging and support. 

“Everyone needs someone to discuss assignments and eat lunches with, and this is our shared responsibility,” Kari-Jussie Lønning, the head of the Students’ health and well-being survey, said in a press release.

In the survey, 41% of the almost 60,000 students who responded said that they have few or no friends at their place of study.

The Norwegian Student Organization (NSO) believes that some students have to prioritize work over making friends.

“With full-time studies and part-time work, many are left with little time for the life that exists outside of studies and work – such as making friends,” NSO leader Maika Marie Godal warned.

  1. Globally it is quite normal for students to go to a University or college away from home and not know other people that is the real world and about social skill development, and getting to know new people. I don’t see why these students cannot do the same, have they not been socialised enough as they have grown up?
