The University of Agder was established on 1 September, 2007 when Agder University College received university accreditation. Agder University College had its roots in Agder College, established in 1994 when six regional colleges merged as a result of the national university college reform.
The merger established an institution with 5,700 students and 540 faculty and staff. The University of Agder had in 2013 approximately 10,000 students, and 1050 administration, faculty and service staff.

The university is organized into five faculties:

  • Faculty of Health and Sport Sciences

  • Faculty of Fine Arts
  • Faculty of Engineering and Science
  • Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences

Teacher education programs are organized as interdisciplinary, under the Teacher Education Unit, through lectures, research, and processional development.

The University of Agder has an international outlook and students from across the globe choose to study here.  With its high standards of teaching and research, it is a dynamic and modern university which prides itself on the large selection of English taught courses offered.  With campuses in Kristiansand and Grimstad along the Norwegian south coast, UiA offers a great place to live and study.
