For exchange students

Registering for courses

After you have arrived at NTNU, you must register the courses you have received preliminary approval for by using Student Web. You must register your courses using Student Web before the deadline in order to be enrolled:

  • Autumn semester: 15 September
  • Spring semester: 1 February

If you cannot remember which courses you were pre-approved for, you should contact the Office of International Relations. However, please check the information that has been sent to you by email first.

Taking courses you have not been pre-approved to take

If you want to take a course for which you were not previously approved there are two ways to obtain approval. The way you do it depends on whether the course has open or restricted admission:

Course search and information

All courses offered at NTNU can be found in the online course catalogue. Remember to check the box "Show only courses offered in English".

Timetables and rooms

Timetables are listed under each course in the timetable tab. You can search for the auditorium/building/room number here.

Check exam dates and identify potential conflicts

Make sure you do not have more than one exam on any given day. The exam dates can be found under course search.

Register using Student Web

You must register for courses using Student Web - even if you have received a preliminary pre-approval before arriving at NTNU.
