New courses for refugees who want to study at NTNU
NTNU has now published new study offers for refugees in the spring semester 2023. The application deadline is 1 December. The refugees can choose from 373 different shorter courses of varying duration, as well as Norwegian language training.
The offer is made to all refugees who have arrived in Norway this year (2022) and have been granted residence by the authorities. University education is free of charge. The Norwegian State pays for student places.

To be taught in English in Trondheim, Gjøvik and Ålesund
The courses will be taught in English, but the university has also allocated student places for refugees who want to use the spring to learn Norwegian.
The subjects are distributed among the three cities where NTNU is based: Trondheim, Gjøvik and Ålesund. The website also has information about admission requirements and application forms.
Wide range of programmes and courses
The programmes and courses at NTNU are distributed as follows:
- 112 shorter courses at bachelor’s level
- 261 shorter courses at master’s level
- Longer courses in Norwegian for foreigners
We emphasize that these are individual courses that do not lead to a full degree. New degree-granting study programs will be started in autumn 2023. The application deadline for these educations is 15 April.
NTNU also offers online courses in Norwegian for beginners, based on self-study and without exams. Here, lessons in Norwegian are offered in six different languages, including Ukrainian.
Academic requirements are set
Applicants must have completed upper secondary school in their country of origin and they must take a test to show that they have a good command of English. NTNU offers such tests free of charge in collaboration with «Folkeuniversitetet» in Trondheim. The tests can be completed without physical attendance.
In addition, academic qualifications will be assessed individually, for example, to find out whether applicants have adequate knowledge in mathematics and physics, which is required for specific study programmes at NTNU.
