We are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and will update the information if the situation changes. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the International Division at ask[at]hi.is

Students from Ukraine 

Regarding students from Ukraine who need to flee the country and request to continue their studies here, UI will in accordance with the Icelandic government's policy on higher education, be flexible regarding access by university students from Ukraine to the university and give them the opportunity to complete their studies. 

The University of Iceland offered a summer course in academic English for refugees in Iceland in preparation for university studies. 

University students are welcome to send inquiries to ask@hi.is should they require further information.

Ukrainian Academic Staff

The University of Iceland will make every effort to provide refuge and provisional work opportunities for academic staff who have had to flee Ukraine. The exact arrangement will need to be adapted based on the development of the situation in Ukraine.
