As a signed language interpreter, you are able to contribute to equal opportunities and participation in society by providing interpreting between Norwegian sign language, and written and spoken Norwegian. During your work, you come across different types of people and get various types of assignments. Therefore, the interpreting profession is suitable for language enthusiasts and social people who enjoy challenges. You should also be interested in communication and social interaction.

Interpreting is a very complex, multi-faceted skill. During the three-year BA program, students acquire a new language, learn several different communication methods and are trained to comprehend, process and disseminate information sequentially and simultaneously.



You have to meet the Norwegian language requirements, or have a Scandinavian language as your mother tongue, if you want to  apply to any of NTNU's degree programmes. You also must meet the basic requirement for admission, and demonstrate that you meet the English language requirements.

The application deadline for the programme is March 1st for students with an international degree, and April 15th for Norwegian and Nordic degree students. Students apply through Samordna Opptak.
