Matriculation 11 August 2015

The Matriculation Ceremony is an enrolment ceremony for all new students at NTNU. The Ceremony consists of speeches and entertainment. While the majority of the speeches are in Norwegian, English subtitles will be provided on large screens.

After the Ceremony, the faculties will arrange welcome meetings for all new master's degree students. Most exchange students do not have any meetings, and are instead invited to a BBQ at International House.
