Information about Student Exchange
Before reading any further, please make yourself acquainted with the information on NTNUs official pages for exchange students "Utenlandsstudier for studenter" on Innsida.
Also, please read and make yourself familiar with the information on this page before addressing the IDI student exchange advisors! This page contains additional information that you will need when getting ready to study abroad such as:
- who to contact
- what your application forms should look like
- how to proceed with your pre-approval and post-approval
- the requirements you must meet
- links to other sites containing information.
Due to an increased number of exchange students, and in order not to delay the processing of applications more than necessary, we now require that you have read, understood, and act according to what is described here. Make sure that your application form is filled in according to the description and example given in the section “Applications”.
Disclaimer: This is a tool for helping IDI's students in Trondheim, and does not have any official status with respect to agreements at NTNU.
All students who want to study abroad must fulfill these requirements:
- You must apply for courses, make sure they are being taught when you are visiting and have the courses approved by us. More information about this approval can be found under your study program’s requirement and under “Applications”.
- The courses must amount to at least 30 credits in average for each semester. For more information about converting credits see the GNAG database.
Requirements for computer science – master (5 years)
- 2nd and 3rd year students:
- Find courses that correspond to your obligatory courses (O)
- Add enough courses so that you have at least 30 credits per semester
- 4th year students
- Find two courses that correspond to the 2 obligatory courses that are part of your specialization.
- EiT and Customer Driven Project (TDT4290) will be approved if all your courses together correspond to at least 20 credits of group projects and group work. Out of these, 50% must be group projects and 2/3 must be computer oriented.
- Courses outside your specialization
- The complimentary course (K-emne) should be replaced with courses that are similar to the courses on the complimentary courses list.
- Instead of “Ingeniøremne annet studieprogram” you can choose any other engineering course except one about IT.
- Add other computer engineer courses until you have at least 30 credits for each semester.
Requirements for informatics – master (2 years)
- 2nd semester
- Find 2 courses that are equivalent to the 2 obligatory courses in your specialization
- Add other computer engineer courses that cover the same subjects as IT3010 and Experts in Teamwork (EiT)
- NB! IT3010 is a course that focuses om methods that is used in informatics research. The course you are choosing to replace it with must therefore contain something research related. Group work does not qualify as research related.
- Remember that the limits imposed by an informatics master on how many undergraduate courses you can have with different levels of difficulty also applies to those studying abroad. Your academic supervisor will help you make sure you meet this requirement. If you are unaware of the limit on credits you can read about it under Tilleggsinformasjon on the Norwegian page Studiets oppbygging for MSIT.
Requirements for engineering in Computer Science, Digital Business Development, Digital Infrastructure and Cyber Security, Information Technology and Digital Collaboration:
- For these study programs it is recommended that you go abroad during the 5th semester. The 5th semester has been adapted to make studying abroad easier.
- You must find courses that correspond to the obligatory courses you have the semester you are studying abroad
- Elective courses are more flexible.
- NB! No courses can overlap with courses you have already done or are going to do when you come back.
When you study abroad you must go through a formal application process in order for your courses to be approved as part of your degree. This process consists of:
Study program specific application processes requirements:
Engineering in Computer Science (BIDATA), Digital Business development (ITBAITBEDR), Digital Infrastructure and Cyber Security (BDIGSEC), Information Technology (ITBAINFO), Digital Collaboration (ITMAIKTSA)
Computer Science and Informatics:
Be aware that NTNU’s standard application form does not ask for all the information that we at IDI need for a smooth application process. Please make sure that the form includes:
- your specialization/profile. You must write this after specifying your study program, either on the same line or after your email address.
- an explicit mapping between your expected NTNU courses and the courses you plan to take abroad. One NTNU course may map to (parts of) several courses at your exchange university, but we need to see how your set of courses abroad map to the courses you would have taken at NTNU:
- In the pre-approval form, add the corresponding NTNU course after the exchange course (section 3) - see example below.
- In the post-approval form, use the Comments field (Ev. kommentarer) for the corresponding NTNU course - see example below
Applying to second choice schools
If you want to, you can apply to a second-choice school in Søknadsweb, but the application for pre-appoval of your second choice cannot be sent in at the same time as your first choice. Your first choice must be rejected before you can apply for pre-approval of another school abroad. Please ask the faculty advisors if you have questions about this.
Apply for pre-approval before you go to study abroad. This will make sure that the courses you take at your exchange university will be approved as part of your degree.
To get an overview of which NTNU courses you need to replace, see your study plan:
- studieplan for bachelor i informatikk
- studieplan for master i datateknologi (2-årig)
- studieplan for master i datateknologi (5-årig)
- studieplan for master i informatikk (2-årig)
- studieplan for bachelor i digital forretningsutvikling
- studieplan for bachelor i digital infrastruktur og cybersikkerhet, Trondheim
- studieplan for bachelor i informasjonsbehandling
- studieplan for bachelor i ingeniørfag, data, Trondheim
- studieplan for master i digital samhandling
- Decide on a university and make sure it has the courses you need. You can find information about this on the page Studiested i utlandet by Internasjonal seksjon.
- Go to confluence wiki and log in using your student username and password
- Go to the menu to the left. Click om the right continent, then country, then university. Now you will find a table and comments of previously approved courses. Choose the one you want.
- Is the course you want not there?
- Create a table like the ones above and insert the new course. Remember to link the course description on the website of the exchange university.
- Fill in which NTNU courses these exchange courses correspond to and how many credits they are worth in the exchange university. (NB! Do not convert them to NTNU credits)
- See the GNAG DB for a list of universities with their course credits corresponding to NTNU (ECTS) credits. NB! This database may not always be 100% updated. Some universities make a difference between credit points for bachelor and master courses, in the sense that bachelor courses are 'worth less' than master courses. This may imply that you have to select more courses at the bachelor level than at the master level in order to achieve the necessary ECTS/NTNU credit points.
- Is the course you want not there?
- Download the pre-approval form. To download it:
- The pre-approval form Søknad om forhåndsgodkjenning is linked to on the Innsida page Godkjenning av utenlandsopphold ved IE-fakultetet
- Go to the form and fill it in. You can find a link to it in the button below. The information you fill in here should be the same as the information on confluence wiki.
- Press "send inn skjema". Now you should be able to download it.
- Send the form to email@example.com.
- If your courses get approved the scientific advisor will return the signed form to you.
- If your courses are not approved, you must find new courses and try again. You have a bigger chance of your courses being approved if they have been so at a previous occasion.
- When you get your signed pre-approval form, you upload it to søknadsweb
During your stay abroad you might want to contact your academic advisor or others to for various reasons. You might have to take a different course for example. When you do contact us:
- remember to always tell which IDI study program and specialization you follow
- remember to always send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org, even if you are in a dialog with a particular scientific advisor
For more information about pre-approval see the article "Forhåndsgodkjenning av fagplan ved utenlandsopphold” on Innsida and the article "Godkjenning av utenlandsopphold ved IE-fakultetet” on Innsida.
Once you have returned home from the foreign educational institution, you must:
- received all your transcript from your exchange university
- contact IDI again to get a post-approval with a signature.
- It is important that you send/bring your pre-approval form at the same time.
- Also remember to tell us your specialization/profile.
- If you have made changes from your pre-approval form, they should be explained in the Comments field.
- Please include documentation of changes that have been approved by advisors during your study abroad. E-mails exchanged between you and your advisor will suffice.
- You get a post-approval signature in one of two ways depending on your study program:
Are you attending the study programs computer science or informatics?
- Send your transcripts, your pre-approval form and your post-approval form to email@example.com, where your academic advisors will look at them.
- If your courses are approved, your form will be signed and sent back to you together with the rest. Next step is to send the form for pre-approval, the transcripts and the signed form for post-approval to the faculty at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here it will be entered into NTNUs systems. Entering your transcripts into NTNUs systems might take some time and you will get an e-mail when it is done.
Are you attending any other study program? (Bachelor of engineering in Computer Science (BIDATA), bachelor’s in Digital Business development (ITBAITBEDR), bachelor’s in Digital Infrastructure and cyber security (BDIGSEC), bachelor’s in Information Technology (ITBAINFO), master’s in Digital Collaboration (ITMAIKTSA))
You can find more information on post-approval and a link to the post-approval form on the web-page "Endelig godkjennig av utenlandsk utdanning" on Innsida.
For an overview of the deadlines go to the article "Søknadsfrister for utenlandsstudier" on Innsida.
You can send all your questions to email@example.com. The academic supervisors will answer questions you have about course content.
The department of Computer Science’s administrative advisors are happy to help with any questions you should have that are not about courses. You can send these questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or you could drop by the reception. You may also send questions directly to the Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering's advisors.
It is important to write which study program you are attending and for those doing a master’s in computer science or informatics you must add your specialization/profile. This is important because you will be assigned an academic supervisor based on your specialization/profile.
