IMPORTANT NOTE for students intereste in studying at HPU during the 4th yr of the 5-yr MS program:
"Since the student has not graduated and attained a Master's degree, they would have to be considered an undergraduate student while they're attending HPU, thus they would be taking only undergraduate-level courses (at the 1000-4000level). They would not be able to take graduate-level courses (6000level or above). "

In otherwords, if you need to take graduate courses and do not have a bachelor's degree, apply elsewhere.

GRADUATE STUDENTS: ie have a Bachelors'd degree already: follow procedures below. HOWEVER, there is no scholarship for graduate students.

In short: You will need to find a faculty member at UC Berkeley who is interested in your research and then convince them to invite them to invite you to Berkeley.

From the above website:
"Your first step should be to seek out faculty in a department you are interested in and see if anyone would be interested in collaborating with you on your research project. The department’s website has a list of all current faculty members and their contact information. Once you have a faculty member who has agreed to sponsor you, the faculty's home department will work with you directly to complete an electronic application form and other necessary paperwork. "

If you have any questions, please contact your sponsoring unit or the Visiting Researcher Scholar and Postdoc Affairs Office at 510-643-9681, 44 Barrows Hall #2572.

If you don't have a faculty contact, check the departmental web pages for who might be a potential advisor. Prepare as one document:

The primary mission of the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study (henceforth the Center) is to strengthen ongoing research collaborations and foster the development of new research collaborations between faculty at the University of California, Berkeley (henceforth UC Berkeley) and from the consortium of nine participating Norwegian academic institutions. The Center’s funding enables UC Berkeley faculty to conduct exploratory and cutting-edge research in tandem with leading researchers from the following nine Norwegian higher education institutions in collaboration with The Norwegian Research Council:
BI Norwegian Business School (BI)
Norwegian School of Economics (NHH)
Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU)
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)
University of Agder (UiA)
University of Bergen (UiB)
University of Oslo (UiO)
University of Stavanger (UiS)
UiT The Arctic University of Norway

The Center will select projects for support and also serve as an administrative hub for these partnerships. The Center will also use its financial resources to support activities such as workshops, mini-conferences, virtual intellectual exchanges, graduate student exchanges, postdoctoral fellow exchanges, the undertaking of exploratory and pilot studies, and the undertaking of core research activities such as data collection and analysis.

Professor Trond Petersen, UC Berkeley, serves as the Academic Director of the Center. Professor Liv Duesund, University of Oslo, is Special Advisor for UC Berkeley. At Berkeley, the Executive Director manages day-to-day operations.

Video from 2016:


UC Davis does NOT utilize the same 'course crashing' model as the other UC Universities Students are able to register in advance for courses. Should there initially not be space in a course which is a student's first priority, students will still have the option of "crashing a course" at the start of the semester when many students are dropping and adding courses. The student would then present the professor with proof that they satisfy the prerequisite requirements and ask the professor if they can register for the course.

In the course schedule information is provided on how many students previously attended a course and how many availalble spaces there were the last time a course was given.

see SCHEDULE link below

Except for Electrical and Computer Engineering courses with LABS/FABRICATION course availability is good.

- Master's degree students (ie have a bachelor's degree): Need to ask each department if GSP students will have access to graduate courses. Students will need to submit form documenting that they fulfill the prerequisite requirements for any graduate course. Confirmed OK for HISTORY dept.
- Bachelor students - typically no access to Master courses.
- 4th year students in the 5-year Master's programs: have to submit a form with their application that they satisfy the prerequisite requirements for all graduate courses selected.

Students who would like to study in the Fall should plan on attending for the summer session (Aug-September) plus the Fall quarter
This will allow you to get 30 ECTS credits (= 30 studiepoeng)
Students studying abroad for the Spring semester would take the Winter + Spring Quarter
For the entire academic year you would take Fall+WInter + Spring quarters

NB!!! Undergraduate Program. Undergraduate students can expect to take 1 maybe 2 graduate courses during the academic year. Opportunities for Master students are being checked.

Yes* 1.feb ~1.april 15.september 1.okt Working Agreement and Agreement of Cooperation Global Study Program
USA University of California - Irvine (UCI) C Updated 2017-09-07
There are several program OPTIONS at UC - IRVINE. UCI visited all three campuses in Fall 2016 and the following should be noted:

1. Master's degree students in International Business & Marketing are the best fit for ACPs. M1 students would study abroad in their 2nd semester for at least 30 ECTS.
2. Bachelor's degree students from the Business School would come for ASAP in their 5th semester. They can start in Summer Session 2 and move onto Fall quarter.
3. There's also a great fit for undergraduate nursing students in ASAP. They would do their "theory" with us, in public health sciences, and their "clinic" in Norway. They would only study with us for one quarter. They'll come either in the Fall of their third year of Spring of their second or third year.
4. I also met with 4 members of the computer engineering faculty. Their bachelor's degree students are also a good fit for ASAP. They would come in their 5th semester. Again, Summer Session 2 followed by Fall quarter would be most ideal.

1. It seems like ASAP is an attractive option for students.

1 - Customized programs (two(2) alternatives A and B
2 - Special opportunities for BUSINESS STUDENTS


Alternative A: Undergraduate UCI coursework (NB! does NOT include courses numbered 200 or above)
Remember NOT POSSIBLE to take grad courses!

Alternative B: 12-month ASAP+ACP+ Optional Internship combination program
This option was developed especially for NTNU - IØT students. The ACP which have been approved by IØT is: International Business Operations and Management:
NB!! Should have at least 2 full academic years before beginning in the ASAP program

Fall + Winter (September - March) : ASAP - Academic Study Abroad Program (Undergrad courses)
Spring (March - June): ACP - Accelerated Certificate Program
Summer: Optional Internship

NOTE!! You may NOT combine courses from different certificate programs
(Note: Alternative B is also described under OPTION 2 for FØK students
These options were discussed Fall 2016 with the student from the former Trondheim Business School in mind. It may also be suitable for students in the IØT program. Check with your advisor!
Jan 1, 2017 both IØT and the Trondheim Business school will be part of the Faculty of Economics and Management, NTNU):

ALT 1. Our Academic Study Abroad Programs (ASAP) is a good option for bachelor's degree students in their 2nd-year. Students would have completed 1 full year before coming to ASAP and 3-quarter study abroad is recommended for them. Although there are some required courses that this group of students needs to take in their study abroad experience, there's a lot of flexibility. It can be planned so that about 50% of the 2nd-year coursework is comprised of elective courses, which affords a lot of flexibility, and the other 50% is comprised of basic courses, such as intro to microeconomics, finance, accounting, etc.

ALT 2. Our Accelerated Certificate Programs are a good option for master's degree students in Business Administration. These students go abroad in their 9th semester (Fall, M2) only. There is no flexibility in timing, but there is flexibility in course selection as the 9th semester is meant for a minor or electives coursework. However, since they all will have completed a bachelor's degree in business, these students often find it hard to be academically challenged in their study abroad semester. We agreed that ACP Project Management or Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship may be the best options for this group of students. Dale confirmed that although 45 UG quarter credits = 60 ECTS, only 36 Grad quarter credits = 60 ECTS; that means that our 19-credit per quarter program more than satisfies the 30 ECTS semester requirement that these master's degree students have.

ALT 3. Our Accelerated Certificate Programs are a good option for master's degree students in Technology Management. I think I understand that these students also go abroad in their 9th semester (Fall, M2). These students will have completed a bachelor's degree in engineering. We agreed that ACP International Business Operations & Management, Program Management, or Innovation Management & Entrepreneurship would be most suitable. As promised, please find attached the course descriptions for these three ACPs.

You should bring a copy of your most recent transcript with you to UCI. It is also a good ideas to bring the course description of any course which is a prerequisite for a course you plan to take. This way if the professor wants to see if you have the prerequisites before she/he admits you to her/his course than you can quickly provide the documentation.

Academic year: UCSD is on the quarter system. Fall (Sept-Dec), Winter (Jan-March), Spring (March-June) ; plus Summer Session I and II (July-September)
Housing suggestions: see

The University and Professional Studies Program (UPS) offered through UCSD Extension allows NTNU students to take UCSD courses on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS. UCSD also offers a number of Business Certificates. Please see

NOTE 1: Students interested studying at UCSD only for the Fall semester at NTNU should register for UCSDs last SUMMER SESSION (starts early august) and then continue on for the Fall quarter (Sept-Dec). The reason for this is that it is impossible to take courses equivalent to 30 "studiepoeng" in one quarter, something required by LÅNEKASSEN. Remember to submit both the regular program application and the Summer Supplemental application. More information below.

NOTE 2: Students interested in doing their master's thesis at UCSD should see the information at the end of this section.

- All classes offered on a space available basis
- You must have graduate standing to take graduate level courses. (ie in your fourth year of a 5-yr Master's program or have completed your Bachelor's degree)

Procedures change so the information on the UCSD always has precedence over that given in the "Sample Application".

NOTE: When to apply:
When applying for Fall/Spring admission: Grades from Fall/Spring semester must appear on your transcript if you are applying for the Fall/Spring quarter of following year. e.g.: you can't apply November 2018/May 2018 for Fall 2018/Winter 2019 .
(Exception: you are on a leave of absence and all your grades already appear on your transcript. )

NOTE! American citizens:
- include a copy of your Norwegian and American passport with your application.
- in the comment field on the cover page of the application write something to the effect of: "I am an American citizen and will not be needing a Certificate of Eligibility. I have enclosed a copy of my American and Norwegian passports."

SUMMER SESSION OPTION (additional information)
Because UCSD is on the quarter system it is impossible to get 30 "studiepoeng" in one quarter (eg Fall quarter, Sept - Dec).

If you would like to study at UCSD during NTNUs fall semester one option is to take two (2) UNDERGRADUATE courses (8 units) at UCSD during the SUMMER II session which runs for 5 weeks from the beginning of August to early September. You can then take up to 15 units during the Fall quarter. If you are taking some graduate courses during the Fall quarter you may only need 12 units to get the required 30 "studiepoeng". Your faculty will determine how many courses you need to take.

You will know by the end of APRIL if you have gotten the courses you requested. This is different from the regular quarter sessions at UCSD where admission is not definate until after the quarter starts and admission to all courses is on a space available basis.
Links (summer session)
- and
The prices are a bit higher/unit during the summer, so check the costs and see what you think:

Update 2019-03-18 SUMMER PROGRAM
during the Summer University Program, you cannot take both UCSD main campus and UCSD Extension classes. They have to be all main campus or all Extension classes. Also, with a student visa the maximum amount of online units you can take is 3. This means students will need 5 in-class units to satisfy the required 8 units for full-time status. Since during summer you only take 2 classes, and most are 4 units each, taking on-line classes during the summer is not a viable option.

The Summer University Program requires payment in full at the time of application. This means students have to include the following payment with their application:
Prices for Summer 2019:
o $200 application fee (this covers both programs, UPS and the Summer University Program)
o $50 express mail fee
o $6075 Summer University Program tuition fee
o $380 student service fee (for the Summer University Program).

END UPDATE 2019-03-18

Application (summer session)
The application procedure is quite simple. Just include the one page SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATION along with the regular UCSD application.


Please see the Important note below. Remember all prices are subject to change.
IMPORTANT NOTE!! If students have to take more than 12 units, they have to pay the additional tuition (ie additional fees per unit) plus any fees associated with the course. Such an additional required fee would be something like the "TED" fee, which is a fee that all UCSD students (matriculated or visiting) must pay if the professor has associated his class with a multimedia account which is managed by campus for the delivery of supplementary instruction or homework online. There are other kinds of fees (such as computer labs) which sometimes happen, but in the current group there were only TED fees.

NB!! Students who would like to do ONLY research should contact the NTNU student exchange coordinator

You will need to find an advisor at UCSD who is willing to invite you.

If you are not already invited prepare documentation of your academic credentials.
- Statement of purpose
- Transcript and Courses in Progress
- Grading system at NTNU
- Letter of recommendation from your advisor (or potential advisor) at NTNU
- other materials which will entice the professor to invite you
- If you have work experience, include your CV, a confirmation/letter of reference

Your contact/professor at UCSD has to submit the appointment package

With this option it was unclear if researchers can take a course and get a transcript. The web site provides no information on this and doesn't say what it would cost. You will have to ask UCSD.

Applications for Visiting Graduate students have to be submitted at least three (3) months in advance of the start date AND EARLIER FOR INTERNATIONAL VISITORS WHO REQUIRE A VISA".

In their application acknowledgement email UCSD may write something to the effect:

"Also, we are aware of your desire to register for 3 sessions of the UPS course. Unfortunately, we can only register you for one at this time because we do not yet have our 2019 course schedule, and your first course is our last session of UPS in 2018. That said, we will add you to our list of students to register in advance for 2019 sessions. This way, we will register you for the second and third sessions as soon as we are able. "
If you are accepted to UCSD they will send you your Certificate of Eligibility (CoE). If you apply for a year (e.g. Sept-June) your Certificate of Eligibility will only state that you have been accepted for Sept-December. Do NOT WORRY. UCSD will change the dates when they are allowed by law to do so.

NTNU students enter UCSB through the UCSB Extension. The program used is called the UNIVERSITY IMMERSION PROGRAM (UIP). (For infomation on UIP see the International Student Programs Brochure on the "BEST LINK" listed below)

Below are links for the course catalogs and for a SAMPLE APPLICATION. Remember to generate a cover page and list of enclosures using the files available on the USA/Canada web pages.

NOTE: UCSB is on the QUARTER system: ie Summer - Fall (Sept-Dec); WINTER (Jan-March); Spring (March-June)

NB!! In order to take 30 ECTS credits (=studiepoeng) for the Fall semester at NTNU, students must begin at UCSB for the second Summer session (August) and then continue on for the FALL QUARTER at UCSB. To apply for summer session just cross off for SUMMER (second 6 weeks).


Note that admission to courses is on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS. Information on space availability is given in the SCHEDULE of classes under the column "ENROLLED". e.g 31/35 means there were 35 places and 31 students took the course.

END UPDATE 2018-01-29

Dual citizenship, one of which is an American citizenship:

UPDATED 2014-02-18 after contact with UCSB:
The student now has THREE (3) basic choices:

1) To bypass the University Immersion Program and simply enroll in the Open University UCSB academic courses: .... What I can say with certainty is that non-UIP students must pay a quarterly registration fee (that currently stands at $155 per quarter) in order to enroll in any OU
courses: the UIP students do not need to pay that quarterly fee. OU students do not pay any program fee or student services (insurance/bus
pass/printing) fee. Therefore, if they wanted to have health insurance, they would need to purchase it on their own.

2) To apply to the UIP: by doing so, the student will receive some services and benefits not afforded to OU non-UIP students: orientation, academic advising, housing assistance, access to university-owned housing rentals, student ID card, wireless, local public bus transportation, insurance, access to the UCSB Student Health Center, printing, and a reduced UCSB Recreation Center membership fee.

It is the responsibility of the dual-citizenship student to contact the local American consulate to inquire whether that student must enter the U.S with an American passport or whether the student may opt to enter with a Norwegian passport. By entering with an American passport, no immigration oversight would be required, and the student could enroll in any number of units desired. By choosing to enter with a Norwegian passport, we would issue the student an I-20 so s/he could obtain an F-1 visa. Possession of an I-20 would mean that there would be immigration oversight adn a need for the student to enroll in the quarterly minimum number of units.

3) we have now made it possible for those who choose to enter with an American passport to participate in our University Immersion Program (UIP). Of course we do not issue any I-20 to these students. Nor would they need any F-1 visa. Instead they enter with their American passport and are considered to be full members of the UIP, meaning that they receive all orientation information and academic advisement, they pay the same fees as F-1 visa holders and receive the same services, and they must adhere to the F-1 minimum enrollment each quarter.

Set up a meeting with US-Canada exchange coordinator (currently Dale LICATA). You must be nominated for the exchange

see (from 2016-11-30) and LINKS BELOW
IMPORTANT NOTE!! When you submit the on-line applicaition
you must select UNDERGRAD or GRADUATE. The selection depends on WHICH COURSES you intend to take.
From UNO:
GRADUATE: "..if you wish to study at the graduate level (any courses numbered at the 5000 or 6000 level), you will have to ...apply to the university as a graduate student. It's a lengthy process but it's better to get it done now before you start enrolling in classes. Once you are enrolled, things get more and more complicated. Then once you are here, attending classes, is it almost impossible. "
TIP from Dale: Bring a copy of your transcript and an English description of the courses satisfying the prerequisite requirements to UNO. This way, if there are any questions you can easily show the professor that you have the necesssary background for the course you have selected.

English Proficiency
UNO lists the information regarding the proof of English Proficiency Level. This is unique to students applying via our office, so information in other places on the UNO web site might be different. NTNU students do NOT have to take the TOEFL or IELTS if they haven't already.

The Summary of Educational Experience does not need to list more than the student's finishing high school and university experience (they don't have to go back prior to high school graduation).

Sorry. No TOEFL Waiver. NB! IELTS OK se

NOTE 2015-10-27
Doubtful about a TOEFL waiver: To be eligible for a TOEFL waiver students must now document English language proficiency in one of two ways:
Accepted forms of assessment include:
1. An interview performed by an English as a Second Language instructor at a home institution (NOT REALLY an OPTION is there is no ESL program at NTNU)

2. Test administered at your university assessing the level of language proficiency with a detailed explanation (No test given at NTNU, so also not an option)

Conclusion for students applying in 2016-17: as of 2015-10-27 - take the TOEFL or IELTS.

Dale will work on trying to obtain a TOEFL waiver based on the grade from upper secondary school, but as of today there is no guarantee.
