About the programme

Students complete 18 credits in core requirements and a minimum of 12 credits in electives over the course of two semesters.

  • The postgraduate diploma is a part-time programme for two semesters/one academic year
  • Students do have the option of finishing the studies within four semesters
  • All of the core courses and most electives demand physical presence, so the studies are not optimal alongside working full-time

Mode of study

  • Course materials and presentations for core courses are usually in English
  • However, the language of instruction is Icelandic, unless the proportion of international students exceeds 10% of students registered for a course: in those cases, the language of instruction is English
  • Students are registered in the interdisciplinary program in public health sciences but their department of graduation is the Faculty of Medicine
