The application deadline for degree studies at our music performance studies is December 15 every year. Bachelor applicants to our degree studies in musicology, music technology and dance studies have deadlines depending on whether the applicants high school degree is from a Nordic country or not (see How to apply).

Information for prospective exchange students (students only staying for a shorter period of time).

Being an exchange student means that one of NTNU's primary admission requirements — that you be proficient in Norwegian — does not apply. However most classes have Norwegian as the language of instruction. The course catalogue has the option to only show courses offered in English.
