Information for incoming exchange students

Some practical information on choosing courses at Department of Mathematics.

  • On the top of the list of all courses offered in English you can find links to lists of courses given a specific semester. These lists are complete for the coming Spring semester by the end of November, and for the coming Autumn semester by the end of May.
  • The first of the four digits in the course code tells you what level the course belongs to. Please note that all our beginners classes are given only in Norwegian, hence you will need some prerequisites to be able to follow the courses given in English in our department. The course description will always list such recommended prior knowledge, and the lecturer will expect you to know this before you attend the course. 
  • All courses starting with MAT are courses in mathematics or courses with an orientation towards informatics, STK courses in statistics and MEK courses in mechanics.
  • Generally you will need at least 30 ECTS points in calculus and linear algebra to be able to follow courses on 2000 level. For courses on 3000 level you will need additional mathematical/statistical knowledge, usually in real and complex analysis.
  • To be able to follow courses on Master's level you will need a Bachelor's degree or equivalent in the subject you want to study: For courses with code MAT4xxx you need a Bachelor's degree in pure mathematics, codes STK4xxx requires a Bachelor's degree in mathematical statistics and MEK4xxx will be based on a Bachelor's degree in mechanics (or math and physics).
  • Recommendations for courses.
  • If you have questions about the content of the courses and prerequisites, please send an e-mail to the Department of Mathematics.
  • For information about admission, semester registration et cetera, please see the Academics website.
