Information for students

Information for students

International students

Since all courses in nursing are in Icelandic, students must know fluent Icelandic in order to take a degree program in nursing. More information for students doing a degree program can be found in the Icelandic section of the website.

International exchange students

The faculty of nursing can arrange clinical practice at Icelandic hospitals and health care institutions for a few students every year from our partner schools. Exchange students typically stay in Iceland for three to six weeks. Our student exchanges primarily take place through our various exchange networks, such as Norlys, Nordinnet, Nordannet, Nordsne and Nordejordemodern.

Information for prospective exchange students

We encourage early application for these positions, as the application process and the process of finding clinical placements can be complicated and time-consuming. Please contact us at for further information

Many things must be taken into account when enrolling in university. The UI Course Catalogue is the ultimate guide for students during their studies. It includes detailed information on programmes and courses and key information about the academic year, registration, fees, examinations and more. The Course Catalogue is published once annually. Students are encouraged to review practical information in the Course Catalogue.

Please note that most courses at the Faculty of Nursing are taught in Icelandic.
