Semester programme in prosthetics and orthotics

Bachelor's course
For exchange students

The Faculty of Health Sciences welcomes exchange students from partner universities to join us for a semester of courses in prosthetics and orthotics and interdisciplinary courses. The faculty offers Norway’s most comprehensive portfolio of study programmes within health and social sciences.

You will participate in theoretical courses together with local students and other exchange students. In addition to the course specific content, you will learn to collaborate in international teams and improve your English language skills.

Students joining us for a full semester will follow a total courseload of 30 ECTS. Depending on course selection, the semester will start between mid-January and mid-February. You are also welcome to join us for a shorter stay, and only follow some of the courses. The start date will then vary depending on your academic and practical needs.

  • Admission requirements

    You must be admitted to a bachelor's programme in the field of health or social sciences. Exceptions may be made for students with a particular interest in the subjects.

  • How to apply

    International exchange students select courses when applying for exchange.

    Application deadline: 1 October.

    The courses are mostly taught sequentially, meaning you will avoid schedule overlap and can concentrate on one course at a time. However not all courses can be combined. Please either list more than 30 ECTS in your proposed Learning Agreement when applying, or contact us beforehand for guidance on designing your semester.

  • Costs

    There is no semester fee for exchange students.
