The structure of studies at the University of Iceland is based on the principle that students register for courses and examinations. Each student is responsible for their studies. Students must therefore be aware of registration rules and advertised registration periods. The more responsibility they take, the better the service they can expect to receive.
The deadline for international students (other than exchange students) to apply for undergraduate and graduate studies is February 1st. Students from the Nordic countries are excepted and may apply for undergraduate studies until June 5th. Further information regarding studying in Iceland is available on the website of the International Office.
