Supporting documents for graduate studies at the University of Iceland
When applying online for graduate studies, a certified copy of the applicant's undergraduate diploma and transcript of records must be sent by post no later than 2 weeks after the application deadline.
Note: Applicants that have graduated from the University of Iceland after 1981 do not have to submit certified copies, as the University maintains a record of their studies and degree(s) awarded.
Photocopied or scanned diplomas and transcripts are not certified copies and therefore unvalid
Certified copy: A certified copy is a document issued by the educational institution on its official paper, signed and certified by the institution with the institution’s stamp in colour, or otherwise certified by an authorized, official authority.
