Outgoing Exchange Students

Outgoing Exchange Students

Students at the University of Iceland have the exciting opportunity to go on exchange at one (or more) of our over 400 partner universities worldwide. 

Studies show that exchange studies have a positive impact on young peoples' employment opportunities, since employers are increasingly looking for people with international experience.

When applying for a Nordplus or Erasmus+ exchange period abroad, students automatically apply for the respective programs’ travel and sustenance grants. For exchange studies outside Europe, grants may be available in certain cases.

Exchange studies all around the world

The University of Iceland collaborates with over four hundred universities worldwide. Students have the opportunity to go on exchange to Scandinavia, Europe, the USA, Canada, Central and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

Students can check out the possibilities available in a database with all the agreements UI has with Partner Universities.
