Tips for choosing and changing courses

Almost all  of NTNU's courses can be found using the online course catalogue. Below are some tips to guide you to select courses: 

  • Check the box 'taught in English' and select the correct city under "Teaching location".
     
  • Courses listed for autumn 2016 will normally be available again autumn 2017.
     
  • Bachelor courses are normally called  "Foundation", "Intermediate" or "Third-year" courses, Master's level courses are called "Second degree level" and PhD courses are called "Doctoral degree level". Some variations of these names may occur.
     
  • Are you eligible? Check if the course requires previous knowledge, the language of instruction, study level, ect. 
     
  • You can choose courses at different faculties/institutes.
     
  • If a course is project based it can normally be supervised in English, even though the language of instruction is Norwegian.
     
  • You are not guaranteed entry to the courses you select. It is the faculty/institute that have the final say in whether you get admission to a course.

Changing your courses

If the course you list is not offered or you are not eligible for admission, you will get the opportunity to pick new courses after arrival at NTNU. Also, if you change your mind about the courses you would like to take; it is usually not a problem to change your courses after arrival.
