This way during the “class” students can receive assistance in planning a semester/year abroad and ask questions rather than listening to me for 45 minutes.Please note that the presentation is on-line and is updated on an irregular basis. An overview of the changes are given at the top of the presentation.Advising is by appointment only. Please respect this. Appointments are typically 20 minutes, but some days have “speed advising” (max 10 minutes). Call to set up an appointment. Appointments may be made up to a week – 10 days in advance. I can fit max 5 students in my office at one time, so bring a friend if you want to.The Office of Int’l Relations is located on the Gløshaugen campus, in the International House, next to the Electrical Engineering Bldg. just west of the Main Administration Bldg.Fellesveiledning USA/Canada

Check the web sites for YOUR program to see if a list of suggested institutions is already available.PRACTICAL QUESTIONS: The Office of Int’l Relations provides information on institutions NTNU has a formal agreement with and, should you be accepted for the exchange , help you with the application process. In the case of Canada/USA some information is also available on other popular destinations.STUDENT REPORTS: Been there, done that. Read these reports for information on what courses were taken, housing, expenses, etc.International students at NTNU: With over 900 International students starting at NTNU each fall, there may be one from the institution you plan on attending the following year. Get together, discuss NTNU and the institution abroad. You’ll have a friend when you arrive.GOOGLE: try a google search for conferences or association/societies pertaining to or working with your field of interest. Use e.g. «conference, key words describing your interest». Who was the key note speaker? What Universities were represented at the conference? For associations: Is there a student chapter? (e.g. American Association of Mechancial Engineers=ASME; Canadian Historical Society= CHA)ANSA: Association for Norwegian Students Abroad has representatives on most continents

Oppfølging fra ISEvt full/delvis fritak for skolepengerAvtaler:Nyttige lenker for Canada/USA bl.a. studiehåndbok, søknadsskjema, noen «sample applications», FRISTER:The details of the formal Agreements (=avtaler) that NTNU has with other educational institutions vary from institution to institution.If there is an agreement in place then the Office of International Relations, (OIR) will be able to advise you about the program available to you and assist you with application procedures. In this case the institution is called a «partner» university.An agreement does NOT always include a full/partial tuition waiver, but it may. (Most don’t)Tuition waivers in Canada/USA are typically based on a «balance» in the exchange ie whether there are an equal number of students coming from a university as there are NTNU students going to that particular university. Since relatively few US exchange students find their way to NTNU, there are only a few «freebies».For partner universities in Canada and the USA (as well as some other «popular» destinations you will find links for course catalogs, application procedures/forms, deadlines and in some cases «sample applications on:TIP: Read COLUMN headings before scrolling/searching the table.

(Note possibly one free spot for Spring Being checked)FRISTER: seThe number of universities in the Canada/U.S.A. offering a full tuition waiver to NTNU students is limited. The reason for this is that NTNU partner universities can often not offer a tuition waiver unless one of their students has elected to study at NTNU (ie “balance). Typically there are more Norwegian students interested in studying in the USA than there are American students interested in coming to Trondheim. In addition, each year NTNU’s partners are dealing with a variety of budgeting issues, that will affect the number of tuition waivers they can offer.Because of these factors the number of tuition waivers will vary from year to year. The above list is updated as additional information on tuition waivers becomes available.
11Hvordan får jeg permission til å ta en del av studier i utlandet Hvordan får jeg permission til å ta en del av studier i utlandet? = Forhåndsgodkjenning1. Sett opp en fag plan:Skap oversikt over: obligatoriske fag og valg fag se studiehåndbokene på nettetEvt snakk med studieveilederen dinHUSK: De fleste forandre fagplanen etter adkomst!Varsle ditt fakultet om evt forandringerHUSK! Tilgang til fagene er på «space available basis» m.a.o Utveklsingstudenter stiller BAKERST i queue for fagvalg. (Unntak: CSU – Monterey Bay)After you have decided which university you want to attend you will need to check if they have the courses you need/want and then ask your faculty for Permission to study abroad = Forhåndsgodkjenning.ASK yourself:If I attended NTNU next semester/year which required courses would I have to take (=obligatorisk fag)? Which electives (= valg fag)?- In most cases you will find information on your program requirements in the NTNU course catalogs:- Next : find out if the university you selected offers courses which cover the material given in the required courses at NTNU. If it doesn’t you will either need to either 1) select another university or 2) see if you can «juggle» your schedule so you can take a required course at NTNU prior to your going abroad or after you’ve returned.- Most students end up changing their original plan for a variety of reasons (course not offered, course full, interest changed etc). Be certain to check that there are alternative courses you can take. If you have any changes you should contact your academic advisor to make certain the change(s) will be approved.TIP! Most universities will have an on-line schedule where you can check how many places there are in a given course and how many places are/were available. Be certain to check this! For some universities the schedule link is given in the «OVERVIEW Table». For others, just use the university’s search engine with the key word: SCHEDULE . The link should turn up. If not, try google.Exception: California State University – Monterey Bay (CSUMB). Prior to arrival you Important note: Degree seeking students are admitted to courses first.Exchange/visiting students are admitted on a space available basis. will be told which courses you have been admitted to.
12Forhåndsgodkjenning/fagplan: litt terminologi i studiehåndbøkene Bachelor’s Grad = Undergraduate (4 år i Canada/USA)Master/PhD Grad = GraduateLower division = første 2 år av Bachelor gradUpper Division = siste 2 år av Bachelor gradPrerequisites= forkunnskapen som trengs for å ta et fagWhen you begin looking at the course catalogs for universities abroad you may find some terminology you are not familiar with.You will often see the terms above …..In Canada and the USA a Bachelor’s degree is four (4) years.Lower/upper division courses refer to courses given during the first/last two (2) years of the Bachelor’s degree.It is YOUR responsibility to check that you have completed the required prerequisites for a course (e.g. by having taken a simliar course here at NTNU).See the next slide for additional information.
13Fagplan: Fagkodene (for eksempel…) : 1. år Bachelor (= undergraduate) (NB!! 1. år Bachelor grad fag godkjennes ikke!!): 2. år Bachelor: 3. år Bachelor: 4. år Bachelor>500: Master/PhD (=graduate)Unntak: bl.a. UC- Berkeley, San Diego og Santa Barbara1-99: år Bachelor: år Bachelor>200: Master/PhDVanligvis tar 4.års studenter en kombinasjon av 3./4. års undergraduate og graduate fag eller bare graduate fag.Bachelorstudenter kan i noen tilfeller ta graduate fag (sjekk forkunnskapskrav)Fakultet bestemmer hva som blir forhåndsgodkjent!!In most course catalogs in the USA/Canada, the course number gives an indication of the level of the course.Many universities use a system (or ) for undergraduate/Bachelor level courses . Courses numbered 500 or over are graduate/Master-PhD.At some popular destinations (Berkeley, UCSD, UCSB) the numbering system used is 1-99 for for 1st and 2nd year Bachelor level courses and for 3rd and 4th year courses. Courses with numbers 200 or higher are graduate/Master-PhD courses.Course numbering systems are typically explained at the beginning of the course catalog.Students studying abroad in their 4th year of a 5-yr Master’s program will often take either all graduate courses or a combination of grad courses and 3rd/4th year undergrad courses.Bachelor degree students who have the necessary prerequisites may be interested in taking a graduate course.Your faculty decides what will be approved.
14Fagplan tip: obligatoriske fag Lag en tabell med oversikt over obligatoriske fag Bruk gjerne engelsk beskrivelsen (se LINKS)Fin fag i utlandet som har ca. tilsvarende emnerHar en kommentar felt - feks pris, +/- med stedet mmNTNU fagEmne (Fagbeskrivelse på engelsk)Fag i utlandetUC-San DiegoEmneUBCDelftTMM4140 Mat.teknikk 2material properties, plasticity, deformation- strengthening mechanisms, fatigue and fracture, by means of mechanics…. Dev’t and optimalisation of products …. … two Cases…. training in teamwork ..3 imp’t groups: aluminium, steel and stainless steel. Aim apply the theoretical models+ present practical industrial-related knowledge of these materials??By using a table format you can quickly see which university offers the courses you need to fulfill your requirements at NTNU.Comparing the English course description of the mandatory course at NTNU with the English course description from the course catalog of the university abroad is often easier than trying to compare the Norwegian description with the English description.If you also add columns for expenses, leisure activities etc you will have an excellent tool for helping you decide which university best matches up with what you are trying to achieve both academically and personally.
15Forhåndsgodkjenning: Hvor mange fag må jeg ta? OBS! Krav om full studiebelastning pr. semesterSkal ta fag tilsvarende 60 studiepoeng (et år)/ 30 SP(et semester)Konverteringsnøkkelen =GNAG databasen gir oversikt over antall credits/units som tilsvarer 60 studiepoeng.One of the most frequently asked questions is «How many courses do I have to take?»In order to be entitled to funding from the State Educational Loan Fund you must take a course load that corresponds to 60 ECTS credits (=studiepoeng(SP)) for one academic year/ 30 SP for et semester.Information on how many courses are required to fulfill this requirement is found in the GNAG database:Your faculty will check your application for study abroad to ensure that you have selected enough courses and then notify you that your program has/has not been approved.Remember: without this approval lånekassen will not approve your loan/stipend!
16Forhåndsgodkjenning: 2. Bruk skjema: «Søknad om delstudier i utlandet» https://www.intersek.ntnu.no/soknadsskjema/FMPro?-db=Soknadsskjema.fp5&-lay=www&-format=login.htm&-viewSkriv ut skjemaet og lever det til fakultetet med fagbeskrivelseneNB!!

So, print out 2 copies of the permision to study abroad application and have it signed. Hand in one to your faculty and submit/show the other to Dale when you either hand in your application/request a «letter of permission» to study at university NTNU doesn’t have an agreement with.
17Hvordan søker jeg til universitet i utlandet? Avtale: søk gjennom NTNU (exchange student)Uten avtale: søk selv non-degree/visiting student (study abroad student)If you apply to one of NTNU’s partner universities the Office of Int’l Relations (OIR) will advise you about the application process and send your application.If there is no agreement between NTNU and the University you are applying to you will have to find out which application form to use, what enclosures to send, when the deadline is and then send the application. In most cases you will apply as a non-degree/visiting/special student, although in some cases you need to apply as a transfer student.If you are applying on your own, don’t panic! The application process is basically the same as with partner universities, except you have to do the work. Using the standard list of enclosures and checking if you need to send any additional materials you will find the application process quick simple.In all cases start by gathering your enclosures in a folder and then when the time comes to send the application you can just sort the enclosures and send them.
18Sjekk oversiktstabellen NB! Ingen Avtale? Bruk søkermotoren som fins på hjemmesidene til universitetene TERMINOLOGI = «nøkkelord»Studiehåndbok = catalog/bulletin (calendar (Canada))Skolepenger = tuitionSøknadsskjema for del-studier = application form for non-degree visiting studentInternasjonal seksjon = feks Office of International Relations Int’l Students and Scholars Officekarakterutskrift = transcriptThe application process is basically the same with or w/o an agreement. The major difference is that with an agreement NTNU’s OIR will tell you which application you need to fill out, what enclosures are required and then send the application for you.Without an agreement you will need to find out which application to send and send it before the deadline. It is a relatively straightforward process and if you use the search engine typically found at the top of the university’s home page along with these suggested «key words», you should find what you need.Courses: Check the catalog/bulletin/calendar = studiehåndbokCosts: Check the tuition costs for international non-residentsApplication form/deadline: Look for infomation for non-degree visiting students/study abroad students. Without an agreement you are NOT an exchange student.Help : Contact the International Office (or Admissions Office) at the university you are apply toKarakterutskrift=transcript (order one through eg STUDWEB)REMEMBER!

19Søknadsprosedyren:send innen fristen on-line (få referanse nummer) eller pdf søknadBetal søknadsgebyr (USD/CAD 0-200)Send elektronisk eller skriv ut søknaden – undertegnSend VEDLEGGENE (akademiske og for immigrasjon)As mentioned previously application routines vary from university to university, but are basically the same whether you apply through an NTNU agreement or on your own. The basic difference is who sends the application: NTNU, Office of Int’l Relations (OIR) or you.In all cases you eitherapply on-line and send or upload the supporting materials (= enclosures) orapply using a pdf form/word document which then, along with the enclosures, is either sent by , mail, fax or uploaded.In most cases you will have to pay a non-refundable APPLICATION fee. (Note: Lånekassen considers this fee to be TUITION so save your receipt!)If NTNU has an agreement with a university, the Office of Int’l Relations (OIR) will tell you what the application procedures are and send the application. In some cases the application procedures are so well described on the university’s web site that you will just be given a link.If NTNU does NOT have an agreement with the university you are applying to you need to find out what the procedures are, apply on your and make certain you meet the application deadline. It is NOT difficult! The enclosures are basically the same no matter where you apply.The supporting materials (= enclosures) are so standard that they can be catagorized as either for 1) academic purposes or 2) for immigration purposes
20Vanlig Vedlegg: Akademiske Karakterutskrift på engelsk (kontakt studentservice)Oversikt over ”Courses in progress” skriv selv A4 ark: (Course code – course title – number of credits(studiepoeng))Statement of Purpose = motivasjonsessayCV? (dersom du ha vært på flere universiteter)Anbefalingsbrev?The «Academic Enclosures» give the univeristy you are applying to an idea of your academic abilities. A description of these enclosures can be accessed through NTNU’s web page for study abroad in Canada/USATranscript in English (sometimes you will also be asked to send the Norwegian version).List of courses in progress (These do not appear on your NTNU transcript so you need to prepare a list with course code and title. Some of these courses may be prerequisites for courses you would like to take when you are abroad and this way the university knows that you have the necessary background. A standard set-up is available on the Canada/USA web page or just make one yourself.)Statement of Purpose – Most, but not all, universities want to know what your background is and why you are applying to their university. A one(1) – max two(2) page essay is enough. For tips see the link at the end of this presentation.CV Only a a few universities ask for a CV and typically it is for students who want to do research on the master’s/PhD level. However, if you have attended several universities a CV gives a nice, concise overview of your academic history.Letters of Recommendation – usually not needed, but if so, see the link on «how to get a letter of recommendation from a professor when she/he barely knows me».

This form will either be an I-20 or DS-2019 depending on the type of visa you will be applying for.After you receive this document you must pay the SEVIS fee (USD 200,-). SEVIS= Student Exchange Visitor Information System.Once you have paid this you can make an appointment for a visa interview in Oslo. (http://norway.usembassy.gov)When you go for the interview bring as little as possible with you since you will not be allowed to take much into the embassy. Remember to bring an umbrella since you may have to wait outside on line.
