All international applicants, applying for International programmes and whose native language is not English, are required to provide proof of English proficiency in the form of TOEFL ibt (in test centre or home), IELTS Academic (in test centre), Cambridge English (CAE or CPE) or PTE Academic (in test centre or online).

Please note that your score from the English tests is only valid if it is possible for UI to verify them online. If you have Cambridge English (CAE or CPE) score you must agree to share the result with University of Iceland (UI).

It is important to attach the test score sheet in the online application form or a confirmation of your test registration. If you are unable to upload the document to your application, you need to send it as soon as possible or no later than 15 February.  If you fail to prove your proficiency in English before the deadline, your application cannot be processed.
