Students at the University of Iceland do not pay tuition fees, only an annual registration fee, ISK 75,000.
International applicants will receive an answer regarding admittance by viewing their application status on the website www.nynemar.hi.is. Those accepted into the University will be sent various practical information, including how to transfer the registration fee from their homeland. The fee needs to be paid by a specific due date, generally a month after reception of the acceptance letter. Registration for studies at the University of Iceland is confirmed upon payment of the registration fee. The registration fee is non-refundable.
Annual course registration
Annual course registration for the upcoming academic year (fall and spring semesters) takes place in March each year. All university students must register during the annual registration period, including graduate students.
The registration fee must be paid in connection with the annual registration. The fee can be paid via credit card online, or by requesting an electronic invoice charged to an online bank account. If the registration fee is not paid by the due date the student is considered to have abandoned studies.
Permission for reduction of annual registration fee
New students who enrol in the middle of the academic year (in January) are charged a reduced registration fee, ISK 55,000. Invalid or handicapped students are also charged a reduced fee, ISK 55,000.
If a university faculty permits a student to take leave from studies for one academic year, the student pays ISK 10,000. The same applies for students from other universities who are enrolled at the University of Iceland on the basis of a student-exchange agreement, unless stipulated otherwise in the respective agreement.
Further information on registration fees can be found in the Course Catalogue.
