Academic counselling

Career and guidance counsellors at the UISCCC provide information on available academic programmes and assist individuals during their choice process. This applies to both registered students and others who are looking for an appropriate study programme.

Advice on academic choices takes place either in a personal interview where the counsellor seeks to identify interests, skills and values of each individual.

The following career and guidance counsellors offer students at the University of Iceland individual interviews on career counselling: Aðalbjörg Guðmundsdóttir, Kristjana Mjöll Sigurðardóttir, Lýdía Kristín Sigurðardóttir and Sigríður Margrét Einarsdóttir.

Examination periods are often considered a stressful time. Better study habits and effective study skills can reduce the strain connected to academic work and the exam periods and prevent stress and test anxiety.  Exam preparation can be divided into two parts: firstly, covering the reading material and using effective study skills and secondly personal preparation.
