New International Students


Orientation Days in Gjøvik, January 5-7, 2018

We strongly encourage all new international students to attend the oriantation days. It is an ideal opportunity to get to know NTNU and Gjøvik, and to make friends before you start your studies. 

Orientation Day(s) for new international students is organised twice a year;

  • in the middle of August for students starting in the autumn semester
  • in the beginning of January for students starting in the spring semester

Upon arrival, you will be met by one of our student assistants at the train/bus station in Gjøvik and taken to the student accommodation. They will help you with practical matters at the start of the semester.
