Orientation week

The Office of International Relations organizes an orientation programme for new international students, called Orientation week, which starts 12 August. You will get to know NTNU, your city and other international students in fun ways, and learn everything you need to know to get started in Norway and settle in at NTNU. We encourage all to attend!

All new students are welcome to attend Fadderuka. It will give you an easier everyday life the first weeks at NTNU. All new students can participate, and you get to know your fellow students from day one.

SOMA is the student organization for master's students at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. They will organize a welcoming program for the new students and the senior students for the upcoming semester, starting this August. This will help the students to communicate and get to know each other. We intend to arrange the program after the University orientation week. More information is available on SOMA's Facebook page

The first semester of the study plan for MSc in Physical Activity and Health consists of three mandatory courses as well as an elective.
