An exciting and academically attractive option for your third semester on the master's in Music, Communication and Technology is to go on student exchange to relevant universities abroad. Department of Musicology at UiO has some recommendations that we present below, and we encourage you to use the opportunity to specialize and learn from international scholars abroad.
As an MCT-student, you are effectively a student both at NTNU and UiO, and you can apply to exchange programmes at both universities - this page gives you recommendations that are offered by UiO. Options and contact points at the NTNU are given on the NTNU page.
The third semester of your master's is recommended for exchange
(see second structure table).
the application deadline at UiO is 15 February for travel in the autumn semester!
