About the programme
Courses should be chosen in cooperation with a supervisor or departmental coordinator.
Of the 60 credits in courses, at least 30 should be from the department (courses marked TÖL, HBV or REI).
Students can choose between two specialisations:
- A BS degree in software engineering or a related subject with grade point average 6.5 or higher. Those who do not have a degree in software engineering must fulfill prerequisites set by the Department of Computer Science.
- All international applicants, whose native language is not English, are required to provide results of the TOEFL (79) or IELTS (6.5) tests as evidence of English proficiency.
- Applicants are asked to submit a letter of motivation, 1 pages, where they should state the reasons they want to pursue graduate work, their academic goals and a suggestion or outline for a final paper.
- Letters of recommendation (2) should be submitted. These should be from faculty members or others who are familiar with your academic work and qualified to evaluate your potential for graduate study. Please ask your referees to send their letters of recommendation directly to the University of Iceland electronically by e-mail (PDF file as attachment) to email@example.com
