Where You Will Study
Think of it as an ancient city with a modern soul. Trondheim was Norway's first capital city, founded more than 1,000 years ago, in 997 - but now instead of Viking raiders and Hanseatic traders, you'll find jazz musicians and an international student body savoring Trondheim city life.
With a population of about 165,000, Trondheim counts itself as Norway's third largest city. The city's cafes spill out onto cobblestone streets lined with colorful wooden buildings, while the twin towers and copper-clad spire of Europe's northernmost gothic cathedral frame the southern skyline.
Trondheim's charms extend well beyond its city centre. The city maintains two public parks with extensive trail networks, for hiking and cross-country skiing. With mountains located both to the south and east of the city, downhill skiing is only 2 hours away. Trondheim fjord also offers its own attractions from swimming, boating and kayaking.
This direct exchange is geared towards students who want to choose from a wide variety of courses taught in English and fully immerse themselves in the life and culture of Norwegian society and student life. Participants need a high level of personal maturity and independence.
NTNU research is on the cutting edge, and many of the technological and cultural innovations that allow Norway to extract oil from the North Sea, grow healthy salmon in fish farms, or interpret the country's 9,000 years of human history have been developed here. In fact, the university itself, founded in 1910, has contributed a solid century of academic achievements and discoveries that have shaped Norwegian society.
As the second largest university in Norway, with 53 departments spread out over seven major campuses, Whether your passion is ship design or medical research , virtual reality or urban renewal in China, NTNU has something for you.
