Exchange students

Admission requirements

If you want to come to NTNU for a period of 3 to 12 months as an exchange student, NTNU considers you to be enrolled at your home university.


Language requirements

We require all international students to have a good command of English at an academic level and you may need to provide TOEFL/IELTS test scores. Students taking courses in English are not required to have any Norwegian language knowledge.

At NTNU, many courses at the master's level are taught in English, while almost all undergraduate courses are taught in Norwegian. However, exams can sometimes be arranged in English and, in the majority of cases, textbooks are available in English. Project work can always be supervised in English.


Information for Architecture and Engineering students

Architecture and Engineering students must have completed a minimum of three years at their home institution (bachelor) prior to arrival in Trondheim. Only courses at a master's level (year 4 and 5) is offered in English. In these subject areas we are also not able to supervise any bachelor's thesis work.
