The Faculty of Humanities welcomes applications from international students who are eligible for completing a degree at the Faculty.

Degree-seeking students must meet the basic requirement for admission and the Norwegian language requirements (except those who plan to study one of our international Master's programmes).The application deadline for the programme is April 15th for Norwegian and Nordic degree students. Students apply through Samordna Opptak . Norwegian and Nordic Master-degree students apply directly to NTNU.

Students with an education from an international university or university college will be considered individually. International degree-seeking students must meet certain admission requirements before they can apply for admission to NTNU as degree-seeking students. The application deadline for international degree-seeking students is 1 March. Students apply through Samordna Opptak.

The majority of international students at the Faculty are exchange students who come to study for short periods of time, within the framework of exchange programmes or bilateral agreements between their institution and NTNU. If your institution has no formal agreement at present, you are welcome here as an international self-financing student.

Students who are invited by NTNU for short periods of time (between 3 and 12 months), are enrolled at their home university and do not have to meet admission requirements (e.g. language requirements). The normal language of instruction, with some exceptions, is Norwegian. However there are many courses taught in English. Exams can be arranged in English and in the majority of the cases textbooks are in English or alternative titles in English will be recommended.
