We require all international students to have a good command of English at an academic level and you may need to provide TOEFL/IELTS test scores. Students taking courses in English are not required to have any Norwegian language knowledge.
At NTNU, many courses at the master's level are taught in English, while almost all undergraduate courses are taught in Norwegian. However, exams can sometimes be arranged in English and, in the majority of cases, textbooks are available in English. Project work can always be supervised in English.
Architecture and Engineering students must have completed a minimum of three years at their home institution (bachelor) prior to arrival in Trondheim. Only courses at a master's level (year 4 and 5) are offered in English. In these subject areas we are also not able to supervise any bachelor's thesis work.
