Application process at NTNU

You must fill out the online application by 15 January.

Applicants must submit all relevant documentation online by 15 January:

  1. ID/passport: submit a copy of the page that has your name, picture, date of birth and nationality on it
  2. Diploma OR documentation of graduation
  3. Complete transcript of record

The online application will be processed after 15 January. 

Final application

If your application is approved, you will receive a final application form. Students who do not qualify to proceed will also be notified by e-mail.

Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to assess your academic background prior to the application process. To see if you are eligible for one of the programmes, please read the requirements on the dedicated programme webpage.


All applications are academically evaluated by the consortium partner universities. Candidates fulfilling the above requirements are ranked based on their academic achievements. The final selection is based on a decision by the admission-board of the consortium.

Spring admissions?

It is not possible to apply for admission for the spring semester due to the structure of the Nordic master's programmes -- all programmes start in autumn, and extend over four semesters.

Financing and financial deposit

There are no tuition fees at NTNU. There are a very limited number of scholarships available for specific student groups (E.g. Quota Scheme or Erasmus Mundus scholarship).

All international students who are not citizens of EU/EEA/EFTA countries must be able to document that they have enough funding to live in Norway while attending university.
