International students studying


Language of instruction

All undergraduate programmes at NTNU are taught in Norwegian and hence require Norwegian proficiency for admission*.

You have to prove proficiency at the time of applying. It is not possible to come to NTNU with the intention to learn Norwegian before you start your degree. 

NTNU offers no bachelor's degrees taught in English.

*Nordic students: Note that Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, or Swedish applicants who have graduated from upper secondary school (videregående skole) in Denmark, Finland, Iceland or Sweden do not need to document their proficiency in Norwegian.


Application deadlines

If you fulfil the Norwegian language requirement and intend to apply directly to an undergraduate programme, the deadline is the 1st of March for most international applicants.  A later deadline may apply if you have previously studied in a Nordic country or have Nordic citizenship. More information can be found at Samordna opptak.


Financing

NTNU does not charge tuition fees. However, all international students who are not citizens of EU/EEA/EFTA countries must be able to document that they have enough funding to live in Norway while attending NTNU.

NTNU does not offer financial support and scholarships for undergraduate students.
