Exchange students

Students at café

As an exchange student at NTNU, you can choose to study in one of three cities: Trondheim  |  Gjøvik  |  Ålesund

Note that you must be able to find enough courses you are eligible to take in the city of your choice. You can only select courses in one city. 

Placement students

It is possible to come as a placement student, if your home university has an agreement with NTNU. Some agreements also provide the opportunity for a combination of a practical placement and theoretical studies.

Free movers

If your university does not have a formal exchange agreement with NTNU, you may apply to study at NTNU for a maximum of one academic year as a free mover.


A good starting point is our FAQ for prospective exchange students.
