New courses for refugees who want to study at NTNU in autumn 2023
NTNU has now published new study offers for refugees in the autumn semester 2023. A «rolling admission» is being carried out with the last application deadline being 15 July. This means that the places are filled as applicants apply.
The offer is given in English to all refugees who arrived in Norway last year or this year (2022 and 2023) and who have been granted residence by the authorities. Applicants must be in Norway in order to apply. University education is free for refugees from countries outside the EU. The State pays for the study places.
Check out the study offer on NTNU website
On the website you will also find information on admission requirements and a link to the application form. The teaching takes place in the three cities where NTNU is based, Trondheim, Gjøvik and Ålesund.
Wide range of programmes and courses
Refugees can choose between;
- 40 international master's programmes
- 352 subjects at master's level
- 110 subjects at bachelor's level
- 80 places on Norwegian courses in Trondheim, Gjøvik and Ålesund
It is emphasized that the offer of individual subjects (shorter courses) does not lead to a full degree.
Academic requirements are set
The admission requirements are in accordance with those for ordinary admission to NTNU. Applicants must have completed upper secondary school and be able to document higher education from their home country.
The website contains further information on the requirements for English skills. We draw particular attention to the fact that it is no longer sufficient to show that you have passed a course at «Folkeuniversitetet», as NTNU has previously recommended. This support scheme has ceased.
The university has also set aside study places for refugees who want to learn Norwegian. In Trondheim and Gjøvik, Norwegian lessons are offered at levels 1, 2 and 3. In Ålesund, lessons are offered at levels 1 and 3.
NTNU also offers online beginner's courses in Norwegian, based on self-learning and without exams. Here, training in Norwegian is provided in six different languages, including Ukrainian.
