Prolongation of exchange studies

Exchange students accepted for a stay at NTNU may apply for a prolongation/extension of their studies for another semester.


Students must apply within the deadline October 1st for the spring semester and May 1st for the fall semester.

What to do

Please send an email to your contact person at the International office within the deadline and mark the subject line in the email with "Prolongation of studies - selection of courses". Please also include an overview of which courses you would like to take next semester.

Once you have received a confirmation from your home institution that your extension is approved, you have to send this one also to your contact person at the Office of International Relations. Please contact your home institution at the same time you send your selection of courses to us.

Housing when extending your studies

Please be aware that you must contact the housing representative at the International office when you are formally accepted for another semester. The International office at NTNU will then contact SiT and ask them to extend your housing contract, but be aware that you are not guaranteed student housing.
